“I have been walking out Cardwell East and West for several years, and have intended to thank you for several years… Love both the new spur trails. THANKS!!” — K & T

“I’m sending you my deep gratitude for the wonderful trails you’ve provided for the public on your property. We have walked the trails that connect down from Fitton Green since they opened, and we have used the Wren trailhead to access the Marys River for many years. My husband and I walked, from the Wren trailhead, on your newest trails today – the one with the lovely little arched bridges over the creek, and the upland one with the beautiful open hillside and spectacular views of Marys Peak. These trails are so well built and the surrounding land so obviously well-cared for.” — J

“I just wanted to let you know how much my family and I appreciate these beautiful trails. I run these trails at least once a week and we take our kids hiking here all the time. Thank you for sharing your land with the community and providing a way for people to enjoy the creeks, forests, Mary’s River and breathtaking view of Mary’s Peak! Crestmont Land Trust is hands down my favorite place to be. Thank you so much!” ─ M

“I have hiked with my family a handful of times over the past year out on the property and was inquiring about opportunities to volunteer in some way. (Trail work, maintenance, or similar needs). Absolutely love the area, what a beautiful place. Thank you.” ─ J
