Join us to celebrate the completion of a bridge across Pine Island Brook on the Hiller Trail.

P7120029 300x225 Hiller Trail Bridge Dedication (Oct. 16, 9 AM)

The bridge was designed, constructed and installed by Boy Scout Brian Buckley as his Eagle Scout project. The bridge joins the two halves of the Hiller Trail created by Nathaniel and Walker Fuchs as their Eagle Scout projects.

The Mattapoisett Land Trust has benefited many times from the involvement of Boy Scout Troop 53 in Mattapoisett, including the walking path in Dunseith Gardens and the clearing of the Grace Pond property.

The Hiller Trail can be accessed from the clearing across from Friends Meeting House on Route 6.
