Mohawk Trail- Bridge Out with New Detour- Cornwall Village

The Mohawk Trail has a bridge washed out south of Jewell St in Cornwall Village. It is strongly recommended that you do not attempt to cross the brook. This bridge is scheduled for repair in 2022. A detour has been developed with the assistance of Cornwall Conservation Trust.

The detour is marked with CFPA blue pin up blazes and blue flagging tape.  The southern most section of the detour is passible, but rough and is more a walk through the woods than a hike on a trail.
