Trail Sign To Be Dedicated On Clyde River

WAITSFIELD, Vt. – The Clyde River and the nationally recognized Buck Flats wetlands are receiving NFCT Clyde River Kioskspecial recognition by the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, thanks to an interpretive kiosk recently installed in East Charleston. 

A dedication for this new sign will take place on Thursday, September 27, from 5:30-6:00 pm, at the intersection of Ten Mile Square Road and Rt. 105 in East Charleston.  The kiosk, which includes a map and images of the area, highlights the natural and cultural history of the Clyde River and the Buck Flats wetlands, one of the most diverse ecosystems in the Northeast. The sign was designed and built by a local committee that included staff from the NorthWoods Stewardship Center, Bill Manning, and Luke Thompson.

The display will help guide paddlers along the Northern Forest Canoe Trail. The trail is the longest paddling trail in the nation, running from Old Forge, New York through Vermont, Quebec, and New Hampshire to Fort Kent, Maine.  In 2011 the Trail was named “Best Canoe Trail” by Outside Magazine. In 2012 the magazine named the Trail a “Best East Coast Adventure.”

The Northern Forest Canoe Trail, Inc. connects people to the Trail’s natural environment, human heritage, and contemporary communities by stewarding, promoting, and providing access to canoe and kayak experiences along this route.
