The hiking trails on some Ausbon Sargent protected properties that are open to the public are listed below by town and by easement donor name.

Many of these trails cross privately owned, conserved land. The landowners have generously granted public access and are available for pedestrian uses only (hiking, skiing, and snowshoeing).  Please respect the generosity of the landowner and “leave no trace” by practicing a carry in/carry out policy. If you bring your dog, be sure they are under your control at all times and, of course, please clean up after them.

[Under each town, just click on any BOLD easement for a printable PDF version of the trail map with driving directions or go to the web site link where you will find the appropriate trail map.]
