Readying the Trails in Berlin

SVT and the Town of Berlin continue to make progress on the trails at the recently conserved Horseshoe Pond. These trails have long been used by area residents through an informal agreement with the previous landowner. Now, with the successful conservation of the property in Fall 2022, the public is guaranteed to forever have access to this beautiful natural area.

In early December, SVT's Jane Maloney and Dan Stimson worked with volunteers Jim Shelhamer and Jim Makuc to install a new kiosk at the trailhead on the property. SVT and the Town have since added maps to the kiosk to help visitors find their way through the trails, which are part of the Mount Pisgah Conservation Area trail network.
