Photo Gallery - Old Route 2, Summer 2006

Click on each photo below to view a larger image.

This past summer we spent 3 weeks working on the "Old Route 2 section" of the CVT in East Montpelier. This section of trail is approx 1 mile in length, and runs east-west between the Winooski River and Route 2. Our focus for the past 3 years has been a 1/4-mile-long portion of this trail segment which we have been building with the help of the VT Youth Conservation Corps' Community Greenways Crews.

A big thanks goes out to the VYCC, the VT Agency of Transportation, the VT Recreation Trails Fund, the Lake Champlain Basin Program and the Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission for their continuing support of this project.
