Eager to know the progress on the blocked bridge over the Mascoma River, we set off on a westerly walk starting near APD. Great progress on the installation of safety railings! Much of the trail is set on a rise above the surrounding land and the drop-offs are potentially dangerous.
Others have discovered the trail.
On one side of the trail is Longacres – on the other side is this small pond. We spotted two pileated woodpeckers and a Downy woodpecker as well as three ducks paddling and dabbling in the pond. Red-winged blackbirds flew in and out of the tall reeds.
There is planking across the bridge and some of the railing has been installed. The bridge is not yet open, but is definitely progressing.
