Bennington Trail Map
The Bennington area is rich with natural resources, including many trails and scenic getaways, but often those resources are unknown and go unused by residents and visitors. The BCRC is working with the Town of Bennington (with the support of the local trail enthusiasts) to create publicly accessible trail maps for more than a dozen existing trails in Bennington. The project is funded through an Agency of Commerce and Community Development Municipal Planning Grant. The maps will be available digitally and for print. The project team will also collect information on the trails being mapped—including allowable uses for each trail, nearby parking, and so on—and provide suggestions for trail improvements (such as signs, parking improvements, or possible connections) to the Town. The project is scheduled to be completed this year, and the map files will be stored in GIS for future use.
