It also promotes the goals of conserving woodlands, wetlands, open space and scenic vistas while providing a trail for outdoor recreation.
Maron said CATS will begin planning for the hiking trail this month, with the goal of opening it by the summer.
“We’ll have some preview hikes for people to see how great this new trail will be and hopefully have it ready to open on National Trails Day, June 1. It will be a wonderful addition to the network of trails we are developing to link our communities.”
