The Committee meets the first Wednesday of each month at 5:00 pm. Meetings are held at the new Trails Barn located at the Dog Park (316 Nells Rock Road). All meetings are open to the public. See the agendas and minutes for more information.

Work Parties: 
Work parties are typically held the 2nd and 4th Saturday morning of the month, year-round.  These work parties are announced in the "Events" section of this blog (right margin) and via the Work Party Email List.  To have your name added to the list, email Val Gosset at valgosset@aol.com. High School students can use these hours to fulfill the High School's requirement of ten hours of community service. A member of the Trails Committee will be able to sign the High School's form on the spot.


  1. Are the Wednesday meetings happening as planned still? Or are they being held via Zoom?

    1. The Trails Committee has not been able to hold any meetings since March 2020 due to the pandemic. The City of Shelton has not been set up for Zoom meetings yet but that may change.
