Property Description:  A Winooski River access parcel in Moretown, just downstream of the confluence of the Mad River, was acquired for permanent conservation at the end of January, 2011.  Jonathan Larsen of Moretown generously gave the property to VRC, and VRC holds a conservation easement, while the deed and other documents were transferred  to the town. In the summer of 2016, VRC made access improvements, including a trail and directional signage.  This 4.25-acre parcel, situated between Route 2 and the Winooski River, just west of the new Route 2 bridge crossing the Winooski, is part of a growing Winooski River Paddlers’ Trail initiative.

Directions to the Property:  Located on Route 2, just west of the new bridge over the Winooski River (west of the state highway garage), the access includes a curb cut, parking spaces and a loop to get closer to the river to drop boats.
