Three new trail connections along the Route 47 Scenic Byway in Hadley and South Hadley are now open for the season! They include a re-route of the trailhead for the New England National Scenic Trail on Old Mountain Road in Hadley on land of Mount Holyoke College, a new kayak and canoe access trail with parking at Huntington Road in Hadley on land of the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, a new trail to Mount Warner from Route 47 across land of Kestrel Land Trust and other owners, and a new loop trail around the back field of the Porter-Phelps-Huntington Museum. Conservation Works provided design, easement negotiation, permitting, and construction services for the projects. Funding was provided by the Massachusetts and U.S. Departments of Transportation through a grant to the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission.
