Avon won’t open trails on lower West Avon Preserve until after April 15
AVON — Town officials have announced that the seasonal closure for the majority of the West Avon Preserve will extend beyond April 15 due to snowpack coverage and adverse muddy conditions.
After evaluating the current state of the trail system, and the current storm cycle, it was decided to keep the lower portions of the West Avon Preserve closed until further notice. Physical barriers and signs will remain at the closure points until the trails are opened. Signs will also be posted at the trailheads alerting trail users of the extended closure.
Residents and guests can still enjoy the upper trails that remain open through the winter, including Our Backyard, Playground Way, and Beaver Creek Point. For more information, call Avon Planning Director Matt Pielsticker, 970-748-4413 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
