2019 Pumpkinvine Bike Ride Photos

Photos taken during the ride can be viewed here and here.

Volunteers plant Northern White Cedar trees

Photo of volunteers planting cedar trees.Five volunteers who are employees at Lippert Components donated their time to plant 27 cedar trees along the trail between County Roads 35 and 37. A few children accompanied their parents and helped with the work. Northern White cedar trees are uncommon in this area but they thrive here. They are evergreen adding attractive color throughout the year. Friends planted cedar trees a short distance east of Middlebury in 2001 before the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail was built. Today the trees are 15 to 20 feet tall and add variety to the natural scenery along the trail.

Pumpkinvine Nature Trail now in Street View in Google Maps

In 2016, the Goshen Park Department used the Goggle Trekker to map the major trails in Goshen, including all of the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail. The results are available for use in Google Maps. Google Trekker allows you to see any part of the trail you choose. You can move the "trail view" along the trail by manipulating an arrow.  Follow these steps to see any portion of the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail.
