The Jericho Trails Committee was established by the Selectboard as an advisory committee to help maintain existing non-motorized public trails and pathways, educate the public on their use, and identify and assist in creating new public trails and pathways.

Designated uses of non-motorized trails and pathways may include walking, running, skiing, biking, and horseback riding. An inventory of trails and pathways, and their designated uses, will be kept at the Jericho Town Hall and on the Jericho website.

After assisting in the creation and distribution of materials regarding existing trails and pathways, the committee will identify potential new trails and pathways for non-motorized travel to schools and businesses, and for recreation, and recommend that the Selectboard pursue their creation. Any public use of a trail on private land must be made with the permission of the private landowner.

The Jericho Trails Committee meets every 2nd Monday of each month. Chairman John Abbott can be reached at (802) 324-3694.
