What is the Woodstock Trails Partnership?
The Woodstock Trails Partnership came together in 2004 as a coalition of local, state and federal organizations and agencies to enhance the awareness, preservation and ultimately use of the network of trails in Woodstock. Most of these wonderful places are here as part of Woodstock because the original stewards of these lands were committed to making these lands accessible to the public for outdoor recreational pursuits.
Our core partnership includes the Billings Park Commission, the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park, the NPS Rivers & Trails Program, the Woodstock Area Chamber of Commerce, the Ottauquechee Health Foundation, Sustainable Woodstock, the Green Mountain Club, and the Vermont Youth Conservation Corp (VYCC).
The existing system and potential new links represent over 30 miles of trail around the Village including Faulkner Trust and Billings Park Commission lands at Mount Peg and Mount Tom, Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park, Vermont Land Trusts' King Farm, and the village sidewalk system.
Trails in the Woodstock community are valued as cultural and historic resources, as well as recreational resources. The Woodstock Trails Partnership supports the stewardship of the hiking trails for recreation and also advocates for the preservation of the historic character of Woodstock trails and public lands.
