Marshfield Outdoors

The Marshfield Conservation Commission
would like to propose a perfect antidote to the past few months of social isolation and confinement in our homes...GET OUTSIDE!
Marshfield--and surrounding towns--are blessed with hundreds of acres of beautiful conserved land hosting a diverse array of plant and animal life,
as well as extensive trails for a variety of outdoor activities. A primary goal of the Conservation Commission is to raise awareness and appreciation of our town's natural resources, and one way that we can pursue this goal during an ongoing pandemic is to encourage everyone reading this message to spend time outdoors exploring our natural areas. As long as we all take precautions to prevent any chance of spreading COVID-19 (wear masks and keep at least six feet apart), it is possible to spend time outdoors safely with friends and family. We've already seen full trailhead parking lots and a larger than normal number of people enjoying our trails. We hope to see all of you out there too!
Here are some links to information about a few natural areas in Marshfield that we recommend exploring...

THE STRANAHAN TOWN FOREST:
Right near Pie in the Sky: Over 600 acres of land boasting several miles of trails that traverse forests, wetlands, and open fields. A trail map is available posted at Pie and also via this link to the Town of Marshfield website... https://www.town.marshfield.VT.us/?SEC=9BBAD366-40F0-43CE-9823-BE64096895C5
THE MARTIN COVERED BRIDGE PARK:
Visible from Route 2. This link provides some information about the bridge's history and its recent restoration (in 2009), as well as tips for exploring the surrounding public conserved land...

THE MONTPELIER & WELLS RIVER RAIL TRAIL:
This trail begins at the Plainfield Park 'n' Ride and follows the route of a historic railroad bed through the towns of Plainfield, Marshfield, Groton, Ryegate, Newbury, and Wells River. The trail surface is mostly level, providing a gentle surface for both hiking and biking. The rail trail is part of the Cross Vermont Trail, and more information and maps can be found on the website of the Cross Vermont Trail Association via this link...
