Georges River Land Trust Offers Winter Trail Access

The public is invited to strap on their snowshoes, skis, and snow pants and enjoy our preserved land this winter. Georges River Land Trust is plowing numerous trailheads to allow the public to get out and enjoy the snow. These areas are free and open for you to explore. This year we have access in 11 different locations stretching from Montville to Cushing. Trail conditions can change so please dress appropriately and plan for the conditions.
