This year marks the tenth anniversary of the conservation of Cady Hill Forest! Today, it's hard to imagine Stowe without Cady Hill. Over the past ten years, the forest has earned its place a cornerstone of the town's recreational landscape. With over 11 miles of trails suitable for walking, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, running, nature viewing, and more, Cady Hill has become a treasured resource for town residents and visitors alike. The forest also provides vital wildlife habitat, including sections identifed as important deer wintering areas.
All of this would not have been possible without the hard work, foresight, and dedication of the project partners ten years ago. Stowe Land Trust worked closely with the Town of Stowe, the Stowe Mountain Bike Club, the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, the Open Space Institute, as well as countless local donors, volunteers, and business supporters to make the project a success!
Ten years is a big birthday, and we're throwing a party! This month SLT and Stowe Trails Partnership are hosting a week full of events and activities celebrating the many sides of Cady Hill. To learn more and register online, visit the individual event pages linked below.
