Hatch trail

Dear editor:

My thanks and congratulations to those volunteers who re-routed the perimeter trail at Hatch Run Conservancy.

It is not easy in these soggy mountains to design a trail that avoids water and also strikes a balance between ascents and descents in order to find interesting terrain and vistas. This new trail does both admirably.

For those unfamiliar with it, the new trail is moderately difficult in either direction, with some challenging climbs, but only about three miles long and well worth the effort.

Give yourself about an hour and a half and be sure to enjoy the new bench with a great view of North Warren!
