Opening of Cattail Trail

June 3, 2023, 10:00 AM2:00 PM


The town of Fairfield is excited to announce the opening of the Cattail Trail, a new trail that runs adjacent to Lawrence High School. The trail will host its opening in conjunction with National Trail Day on Saturday, June 3. Recognizing the importance of protecting natural resources and inviting the public to participate in the beautification of Fairfield’s trails, the event will also highlight three additional trails that create linkages throughout the municipality: the Kennebec Valley Community College (KVCC) Campus Trail, the Goodwill-Hinckley Trails, and the Mill Island Trail.

The American Hiking Society’s National Trail Day highlights a national movement to create more inclusive and accessible trail networks. The Economic and Community Development Committee of Fairfield are spearheading the event and will be present at the Cattail Trail to assist walkers on their journeys from 10 AM-12 PM. The Cattail Trail is located adjacent to Lawrence High School, and the opening event will take place from 10 AM-2 PM on June 3.

National Trails Day will also recognize the launch of the Fairfield Trails Passbook initiative, which will be open until September 4, 2023. Visitors are encouraged to utilize Fairfield’s trail systems throughout the summer. Each trail will have a QR code that will allow users to photograph their visits along the town’s trails. Participants who walk and record all four trail site visits will be entered into a drawing for a prize, with the drawing taking place after Labor Day.
