Come explore the various paved and dirt/gravel walking paths of the Ledges while safely enjoying some outdoor exercise in a beautiful setting! Thanks to the talents of Lucia Foley, BWC member, with special assistance from Bruce Forcier, Select Board member and avid golfer, a new map has been created for the public's use to walk the extensive grounds while the course is closed for golfing. The unmarked trails of the Newton-Jones-Carver Conservation Lands can also be accessed from the back of Holes # 7 & 8 (to access the trails, walk around or over the tree trunks laid down).
Feel free to park in the Ledges' parking lot; the Club House is also closed for the winter season, including the restroom facilities. The course can be used for other non-vehicular recreation such as snowshoeing and cross-country skiing; for all users, please stay off the tees and greens to avoid damage (watch for markers and small hills to denote their presence). All dogs must be leashed with dog waste picked up and removed from the premises.
