Accessible trail considered in Londonderry
During Thursday night’s heritage commission meeting, Commissioner Ann Chiampa shared updates on a proposal to build an accessible trail winding through forest behind the historic commons. The forest lands were acquired by the town in 1985.
According to the organization’s website, Crotched Mountain’s Gregg and Dutton Brook trails combine hardtack pathways, boardwalks and moderate grades to create a fully-accessible, yet natural-appearing hiking experience.
Could such a project work for Londonderry? Right now it’s tough to say, but town officials are open to discussing some future options.
Heritage Commissioner Tom Bianchi said the project could potentially be done in phases. “That might work better, if we run into opposition moneywise,” he said. “We could make a nice, clear trail first, then make it wheelchair accessible later on.”
