Free Trail-gating party at Branbury State Park this weekend

Saturday June 2nd, 2012 is National Trails Day!

This is the 20th annual National Trails Day. The event was created as a trail awareness program by the American Hiking Society. We encourage you to get out and hike, bike, or paddle your favorite route on June 2nd, or find a new favorite!

Vermont State Parks is also co-sponsoring a National Trails Day event, and YOU’RE INVITED!
Location: Branbury State Park and the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area in the Green Mountain National Forest. Meet at Branbury, the hike/bike will start there and head into the National Forest.

When: Saturday, June 2nd from 10am until 2pm (Feel free to stay longer and enjoy the park and trails on your own!)

10:00 am: Your choice of an easy to moderate guided hike to Silver Lake or an advanced 11 mile mountain bike ride (bring your own bike) on the newly re-opened and reconstructed Leicester Hollow and Chandler Ridge Trails within the Green Mountain National Forest. You can also choose to hike on your own if you prefer to explore solo.

12:00 pm-2:00 pm: Interpretive activities for children and adults alike. I’ve also heard a rumor that Smokey Bear plans on dropping by! We’ll even have FREE ICE CREAM at the event, while supplies last.

And the best part of this TRAIL-gating party is that it is FREE! Park admission to Branbury State Park will be FREE on June 2nd for this National Trails Day event, and all of the activities are also FREE! (Free park admission on June 2nd applies only to Branbury)

For more information contact Branbury State Park at 802-247-5925. We hope to see you there!


  1. Wondering if there is going to be an alternative date, since it looks like rain tomorrow? Thanks!
