National Trails Day is June 7

GOSHEN The Moosalamoo Association are pleased to announce a National Trails Day celebration Saturday, June 7 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to be held at the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area in Goshen. The celebration promises to be a fun-filled day of outdoor adventure with activities appropriate for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and at all levels of ability. There will be guided hikes beginning at 11:00 a.m. and taking off throughout the day. Hikes will focus on birds and other wildlife, wildflowers, map skills, and safety. Food and beverage will be available for purchase. The US Congress designated the Moosalamoo region as a National Recreation Area in December 2006. The 15,857-acre region is a jewel nestled in the heart of the Green Mountain National Forest. Lake Dunmore is on its western border and the Joseph Battell Wilderness to the east. It is bordered to the north by Scenic Route 125 in Ripton and to the south by Route 73 in Brandon. This premier recreation destination includes many hiking trails, mountain bike trails, the Robert Frost Wayside and camping at Silver Lake, and Moosalamoo campgrounds. The region is best known for its lakes and mountains, but gateway villages also offer museums, restaurants, artisan shops, and a wide variety of activities and accommodations.
