The Charlotte Trails Committee recently received a grant for $50,000 from the VTrans Bike and Pedestrian Program to continue its work on the Charlotte Town Link Trail.
This multi-use trail runs for seven miles from the town beach into the West Village center and on to Mt. Philo. Its purpose is to provide a track for hikers, bikers and cross-country skiers that connects the two sides of town, East and West Charlotte. The grant is intended to allow the committee to scope and plan the next phases of the trail. One phase is on State Park Road, the other from Cohousing into the West Charlotte village. This is the third grant Charlotte has received to support the Town Link Trail. The two previous ones came in 2011 and 2013, each for $20,000.
