Salem commission may look at future trail systems

SALEM — As the Conservation Commission is looking to refine its goals for the future, one member is taking a look at how to improve conservation land access in town.

During a recent commission meeting, member Stephanie Tetreault said she would like to see the town look into new trails, or possibly a boardwalk into World End Pond.

“Put something down on paper and bring it back,” said commission Chairman William Dumont. “We’ll see what we can do with it.”

Commission member Linda Harvey noted that the town does have a large conservation area surrounded by conservation easements in North Salem that abuts the Windham Town Forest that could be a possible area for trail development.

Dumont said he was out there several years ago and that someone said there was a trail system around the area and through the easements.

“It wasn’t being maintained because all the owners didn’t want to get involved in maintaining it,” said Dumont.

If there were spots suitable for being cleared into new trails, Harvey said that was something that a trails committee separate from the Conservation Commission might want to take up.

“At this point I think the commission has pretty much all it can handle with Hawkins Farm and the town forest as far as doing trail maintenance,” said Harvey. “I know that other places do have trail committees and that might be an option.”
