The Friends are pleased to announce that the first of the new trails at Chester/Sawmill is open for use! Numerous Friends volunteers spent multiple days this summer brushing the trail out, and on November 9th, we put in the final day to finish it!
It’s a beautiful and easy rolling walk with no steep hills through a pretty forest with some views of Mt. Murray and Mt. Smith-Dorrien across the valley. To check it out, park in the Sawmill parking lot, and take the marked snowshoe trails heading south.
Distance: roughly 3 km loop, height gain 80 m
Suggested rating: Easy
A short loop best done anti-clockwise to make best use of the limited views, or clockwise to avoid going up a short hill.
