Green Mountain Club Newsletter - June 26, 2015 - The Winooski River Footbridge is Open!

posted at 1:04 pm Fri Jun 26th, 2015 by (WherezIt_Staff)

The FootbridgeLong Trail Winooski River Footbridge and relocation are now open!

Thanks to all of you who joined us in celebrating this historic crossing on June 12th. With over 200 people in attendance, we officially opened the relocation and footbridge for public use, securing a permanent crossing over the Winooski River and accomplishing a 100-year dream of the Green Mountain Club.

We are humbled by the overwhelming support we received and could not have accomplished such a feat without the 1,400 individual donors, the State of Vermont, the Town of Bolton and our amazing staff and volunteers.

With gratitude, 

Green Mountain Club

P.S. You can watch highlights from the bridge opening here. We were also thrilled that Vermont Public Radio and Backpacker Magazine covered the event!
