Residents and visitors in the town of Woodstock enjoy the historic Faulkner Trail, which was recently repaired with help from the National Park Service Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance program. The trail was built over 75 years ago by Marianne Faulkner as a tribute to her husband, and has been in use ever since. Today, it connects the Woodstock Trail system with Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park. In 2004, the Billings Park Commission began to restore this trail, along with 30 miles of other Woodstock trails. RTCA gave technical assistance while a Vermont youth crew worked with a trails restoration specialist to repair stonework, clean out stone culverts, and repair trail tread.
