Canton Land Conservation Trust
Canton Land Trust Challenge - summer 2020!!

The Canton Land Conservation Trust announced the Canton Land Trust Challenge, earlier in 2020 as a series of eight hikes whose total distance is just over 23 miles.

Check out the wonderful preview video (3:45) created by Anneliese Sonju and featuring original music by Zack Scott

We are pleased to report that a number of people, some individually, some as families and some with dogs have completed the challenge. The following table lists those who have completed the challenge.

We are looking forward to creating another challenge next spring, probably with some additional trails.

Congratulations to all!
