New Trail Near Town Now Complete

The recent acquisition of the Joseph J. Schott Nature Preserve has allowed the Conservancy to expand a trail system that now crosses both the Watson Preserve and the Schott Preserve. This now approximately mile-long trail is strategically located to provide easy access to the neighborhoods immediately to the north with parking off of Mink Road. “We place a high priority on offering trails that are next to or near neighborhoods,” said Kieran Fleming, LTC’s director of land protection and stewardship. “This new trail is easily accessible off of M-119 and walking distance from dozens of homes.”
