Cascadilla Gorge Trail vanadalized again
"We spent six years trying to get the gorge trail fully reopened, a huge commitment, and it was really fantastic to hear the response of the community to having the trail reopened, to feel safe, to look beautiful, to look like a historic gorge trail should look," said Plantations director of Natural Areas, Todd Bittner.
Seven different areas have now been defaced, including staircases, part of a stone wall, the new cement staircase, under the stone arch foot bridge and part of a retaining wall. The removal could cost up to $20,000.
