Shutesville Hill Wildlife Corridor Community Walk
Meeting Place: Wall Trail trailhead at the End of Barnes Hill Road, in Moscow/Stowe (NOT the Barnes Hill Road in Waterbury/Stowe Hollow).
The Shutesville Hill Wildlife Corridor one of the five most important wildlife crossings in Vermont and a critical part of a international network of connected forest habitats in the northeast. Crossing Route 100 on the Waterbury-Stowe town line, it is the only viable ecological connection between the Green Mountains and Worcester Range.
Experience the Shutesville Hill Wildlife Corridor first-hand with biologists from SLT, the Waterbury Conservation Commission and other members of a unique conservation partnership focused on working together with landowners and concerned citizens to keep the corridor intact and functioning. We'll walk from the end of Barnes Hill Road to Route 100 and back on wooded trails through a core part of the corridor. Learn where the corridor is located, why it so important, what threats it is facing, and how we can work together to keep it open and safe.
Walk is 2 miles round trip over moderate terrain. Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a water bottle. Rain or shine; dress for the weather.
Directions: From Route 100, turn onto Moscow Road. Just past the Pizza Joint, turn left onto Adams Mill Road. Continue straight onto Barnes Hill Road for approx. 1 mile. Look for a small pull out area on the left side of the road before the last driveway. Park along the road.
