If you’re driving along County Road 20 southwest of Middlebury, or are adventurous enough to be pedaling by, you may notice a new sign has appeared along the Trail. This Donor Recognition sign has been in the works for several years, and this February during the snowiest of spells, our friends over at Premier Signs worked their magic.

One side recognizes those who invested in the completion of the Trail between County Roads 33 and 20, and the other, which is yet to be finished, will eventually recognize those who contribute to the completion of the Trail segment between County Roads 20 and 35. 

A permanent stone base will be built once construction begins on the final segment of Trail. Etched into stonework in the base will be the names of those contributing $10,000 and more to Trail completion.  This is expected to happen in Spring of 2022. But for now, those donors can be found on the sign near the base.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to all who’ve invested in this gift to our community.
