In May 2016 new trail signs were made by the Moosalamoo Association with help from the GMNF. They were installed at the summit of Mt. Moosalamoo, on the Mt. Moosalamoo Trail near the campground, and at the Keewaydin/Oak Ridge Trail junction.  During 2017 more signs will be installed at the Mt.Moosalamoo/Oak Ridge trail junction, and in the vicinity of FR92 and the Oak Ridge Trail farther north, as well as some other trail sign adjustments to make them easier to see.

For the first time since 2006 a new, fully updated map is now available that accurately show all trails and their uses, terrain and landmarks. This was  a two year effort by the Moosalamoo Association, Middlebury College and the Addison Independent, and was printed in July 2017 by 802 Print LLC of Vergennes, VT.

Please visit the Map page  and click “Download Map for Offline Viewing” to display the map as a pdf file, which can be saved for later viewing or printed.  Or, if you would prefer to have the 13″ x 16″ printed version on glossy paper  mailed to you, email your request to contact.moosalamoo@gmail.com

 


There are now over 30 bluebird houses that make up the Moosalamoo Bluebird Trail  from the Blueberry Management area to the Robert Frost Nature Trail.  Much thanks to Bruce Brown!
