New natural trail opens in Bernardsville

About 100 enthusiastic lovers of the outdoors gathered on Saturday, May 5, 2018 to celebrate the official opening of the new Old Army Trail at New Jersey Audubon’s Scherman Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary off Hardscrabble Road in Bernardsville.
 
The trail connects this rural part of town with the borough’s Polo Grounds and the more urban downtown section of the community.
 
Dignitaries from New Jersey Audubon, Bernardsville Mayor Kevin Sooy and members of the Borough Council and Somerset Hills Board of Education, the Bernardsville Open Space and Green Team committees, as well as the Land Conservancy of New Jersey, welcomed the connecting trail that will facilitate nature hikes for all ages.
 
Local Brownies and Girl Scouts had a key role in cutting the ribbon to open the newly constructed footbridge over Indian Brook Grave. Scouts Stella and Sophia Strubble had bracelets made from the ribbon before the group began to hike the trail.
 
Among those attending the event were Eric Stiles, president and CEO of New Jersey Audubon, and Dorothy Clair, who serves on the Board of Directors for NJ Audubon.
 
The new trails and a footbridge over the Indian Grave Brook were developed using a $22,000 grant from the New Jersey Recreational Trails Grant Program, supported by the Federal Highway Administration.
