Shoreline Greenway Trail leaders along with Branford Selectman Andrew Campbell will be walking the Tabor Trail this Saturday, Jan. 5 at 10 a.m. "Explore wonderful recreational possibilities of Branford’s Tabor property," the SGT's website states.
"The walk will start at Tilcon Drive and walk east through the lovely woods skirting Chet's Pond," the website states. The pond is named for avid Branford trail enthusiast, Chet Blomquist who has worked tirelessly on the Branford River Gateway Project located near the Tabor property.
Interested walkers can park at Tabor Lutheran Church. Walkers are recommended to wear sturdy shoes and leashed dogs are welcome.
Shortly before the Greenway Trail crosses Pine Orchard Road, the website states, walkers will join the Branford Trail, looping around west, walking to the top of the closed landfill for views of Long Island Sound, Branford River, and the town.
The Tabor property has been a recent topic of discussion as the town plans on placing Branford Public Works on about 10 acres of the 77-acre parcel. Attached is the town's "Master Plan" for the area, which also includes recreation.
You can read more about the plans to place PWD on the Tabor Property here as well as more about a group rallying against the placement here.
