Come Check Out the New Trail!

The new trail at Silvermont is completed and ready for visitors of all ages, IMG_1962be it on foot, in strollers, or wheelchairs.  The trail was designed to be ADA accessible, and at almost one half mile in length, it is the longest such trail in the area.  Generously funded by Gene and Sally Baker, in memory of their son Jonathan who grew up in Brevard and loved the outdoors, the completed trail accomplishes one of the primary goals of the Silvermont Centennial grounds plan.   The trail starts at the front of property winding through the “Walk of History” and then leads visitors through woodlands, a beautiful Conifer Garden, the Master Gardener demonstration gardens, picnic spots and recreation areas.  The trail was constructed by Long Cane Trails whose project team worked with the County horticulturist to assure that existing plants were not damaged, and that storm water was managed properly, with some portions of the trail constructed as boardwalks over drystreams.
