Be kind. Be Smart.  Don't endanger your horse or yourself  the ground is too wet or frozen and sometimes both.  Hazards can be hidden by snowfall.  Any damage done does not repair itself.  Maintenance for the area is by volunteers only.  Knowledgeable and experienced riders are welcome to use trails at their own risk but no trail maintenance is done until late spring.

West Newbury Trails Presentation on February 12


Trails are an integral component of the open space and natural beauty that West Newbury residents and visitors can enjoy year-round. Whether dog walking at Mill Pond, bird watching along the Merrimack, riding through Riverbend Conservation Area or exploring around the Artichoke Reservoir or Brake Hill, there are miles of interconnected pathways that make West Newbury an Essex County treasure.


Who developed those trails? Who maintains them? How are they marked and mapped? What activities are permitted where and when?


The West Newbury Riding and Driving Club is hosting a presentation and discussion of these and other questions you may have on Wednesday February 12, 2020 at the GAR Memorial Library from 6:30-7:45 pm. Deb Hamilton, WNRDC officer and ECTA (Essex County Trail Association) board member, will lead the talk, and all interested trail users are invited to attend. Please join us, whether you walk a dog, pedal a mountain bike, ride a horse, seek “shinrin-yoku” (forest bathing) or hike with the kids, and if your interest is in finding, using, developing, protecting and maintaining our beautiful trails. Maps, websites and links to other organizations will be available as well. This is a free event, open to all, not just to WNRDC and ECTA members.

 We are looking to add one or two people to help out in the Pipestave mowing rotation. It doesn’t have to be split equally but having others in the rotation would be greatly appreciated. All equipment is provided. There is a mower and weed whacker in the trailer. Please contact Jeffrey_clewley@yahoo.com.
