Punch Brook Trail, Burlington- Trail Closure

Description: 

The DEEP Fisheries Division will sometimes shoot at the Punch Brook Ponds on Punch Brook Road to keep predators from killing fish being nurtured by the hatchery. All shooting is across the ponds and toward the north into a steep bank. As a result, Punch Brook Trail (CFPA's Purple-Dot Trail) must be moved to the ridgetop above and the trail section that currently dips down the hill and close to the ponds must be abandoned for public safety. Shooting will not occur until the trail is satisfactorily closed on the ground.

Tunxis Trail, Burlington - Trail Relocation & New Trail

Description: 

The Burlington gap in the Tunxis Trail has been closed, and the trail is now continuous from Bristol's Marsh Pond to the Massachusetts line.  Trail volunteers have converted the yellow-dot trail to mainline blue, and blazed a new section from Rt. 4 (across from Joni's Antiques) south to the yellow-dot's former termination at its junction with the white-dot trail.
