Bristol Trail Network is open for hikes

BRISTOL — Porter Knight, Bristol Recreation Club vice president, is reminding everyone that the Bristol Trail Network — including the High School trail — is open. 
“Though the Mount Abraham Union High School property is otherwise closed to the public, the superintendent has confirmed that it is OK to use the trail behind the high school,” Knight said in an email to rec club enthusiasts late last week. She is also Bristol Trail Network coordinator.
“Please help us spread the word.” 
The signs posted around the high school saying that the property is closed have been causing a lot of confusion, so Knight reached out to Superintendent Patrick Reen, who gave the thumbs up to using the walking and hiking trails.
The Bristol Recreation Park fields on the east side of Airport Drive are also open (though the tennis courts, horseshoe pits, and the HUB teen center are closed to limit gathering or close interactions).
“As always, of course, be responsible and respectful: keep your distance from other users. And please pick up after your dog,” Knight added. “Stay safe everyone.”
