Storybook Trail Gets a Makeover

A Daisy Troop gathers at Wolbach Farm before heading out on the Storybook Trail.

Boy Scout Connor Goodwin has given the Storybook Trail at Wolbach Farm a new look. For his Eagle Project, Connor designed, built, and installed new cases along the trail to protect the book pages from wind, rain, and snow.

As of January 2021, the Storybook Trail feature The Wish Tree by Kyo Maclear, the tale of a young boy and his sled who befriend several wild animals on their trek to find a fabled wish tree. We've already seen lots of traffic on the revamped trail, as families are eager to take a walk on these beautiful winter days.

A few pages of the book are posted at each of the 12 stations along the 3/4-mile path. Enjoy the story in sections as you walk through the woods! (Remember: The trail could be muddy or snowy.) Directions to Wolbach.
