Traveling on Route 2 through Plainfield VT, paddlers, anglers and swimmers now have a safe path to access the Winooski River. Just off of Nasmith Brook Road, a parking area and informational Kiosk on the Twinfield Union School property directs you to a gravel path and ramp, leading to the river’s edge.
The VRC is grateful for the help from many community partners in the completion of this project! We appreciate the support and enthusiasm for the project by the Twinfield Union School, and it’s principal Mark Mooney. Twinfield School teacher Trevor Tait helped to organize the project and built the informational kiosk with his students. Twinfield staff member Richard used the school’s tractor to move much of the stone on site for us.
Stone was donated by J.A. McDonald operating out of the Bickfords Quarry, and M. Brown Trucking out of East Montpelier donated their services to move the material. Rounding off our team were three interns from Johnson State College; Seth Bosman, Steve Eng, and Jacob Jackson.
Funded through a grant from the American Canoe Association.
