Eagle Scout Project to connect trails at Ingram Park


CCT Directors Katie Holden & Dick Avery enjoy the view from a ledge in Ingram Park. The view overlooks the Vedanta Center property.

Thus far the CCT has benefited from 3 Eagle Scout Projects to map and construct a walking trail in Ingram Park.

  • Robbie Hillman and team started the first trail from Norman Todd Road that included steps down from the road level and a lengthy board walk across the wet areas and a brook  and continued to the first stone wall.
  • Kevin Mack and team broke a trail starting near the new houses up to the rock that overlooks the Vedanta Center property and added a bench there for rest and relaxation.
  • Adam Benson and team built and installed the kiosk plus extended Robbie’s trail beyond the stone wall to form a loop encompassing views of rock formations, the Greenbush rail line, and an old cellar hole.
  • photo 1Now, George Bryan plans to break a trail that connects Adam’s loop to Kevin’s overlook. He will also put up trail markers and signs showing how to get back to the street.

This work should be done before the snow falls this season. When complete a network of trails will provide access to this natural resource area of 27.4 acres off Norman Todd Road between the railroad tracks and the Vedanta Center.
