Letter to the editor: Bristol trail nice, could use signs

Wonderful trails around Bristol. This network will get bigger and bigger. Get out now and do some hiking on nice easy trails. Drive to the east behind the new firehouse to a pile of gravel and walk left (east) along the edge of the woods to the corner of the woods and go right along this trail loop.
Or park at the small buildings along the road to Mt. Abe and go left to the woods edge and look for ways into the woods to find the trail around the athletic fields just inside the woods. This trail has some signs showing tree types, but at this stage it would be good to have small, 3 x 3-inch in yellow signs that have BTN on them so hikers can feel better about feeling they are on the trail, especially north of the dump. These could be similar to TAM (Trail around Middlebury) or AT (Appalachian Trail). They should be cheap and easy to put up or change. Some friends got confused around the Land Fill. Thanks for the work.
