Our panel discussion on Monday Oct 7th, 2013 at the Groton Senior Center was an informative well attended event. An audience of approximately 50 listened intently as the panelists each gave a brief introduction and then as moderator Tom Reynolds asked panelists to respond to questions designed to tease out the major opprtunities and challenges inherent in developing trails on reservoir property. Questions form the audience were solicited during the introduction period and were answered as well. The entire discussion was videotaped by the generous Groton Municipal Television.

Introduction

March 4th, 2010

The Tri-Town Trail will be South Eastern Connecticut’s first regional trail, and when complete, will be an amazing 14 mile long, multi-use trail, through a scenic valley that connects Bluff Point State Park to Preston Community Park.  The trail will connect 4000 acres of State and local Open Space, have only seven road crossings, impact fewer than ten private properties, start at sea level – climb 400’ – and nearly return to sea level, and most impressively, 40% of the trail already exists we just need to allow access and connect the pieces.  To find out more, please see the links to the plans and maps.

If you would like to support the trail, please sign our petition.
