New trail opens at Kai Lon Preserve

Lewisboro Scout completes Eagle project

BY GINO DE ANGELIS
STAFF WRITER

A new trail at the Kai Lon Preserve o

Old Bedford Road has opened in Goldens

Bridge. e trail was built by Jackson Mc-

Guire of Troop 1 Lewisboro for his Eagle

Scout Project, alongside support from the

Lewisboro Land Trust.

“He’s had a wonderful experience work-

ing on this Eagle Scout project,” said Bob-

be Stultz, co-chair of the Lewisboro Land

Trust. “It was a complete pleasure working

with Jackson, he’s a self-starter, and he’s mo-

tivated, and you just tell him what you want

done and he goes and does it.”

McGuire worked with the trust’s natural-

ist, Jim Nordgren, to map the preserve and

then marked where the trail itself would go,

Stultz said. e project also involved build-

ing a kiosk at the trailhead that contains a

map as well as a seating area at the hilltop. The ribbon is cut at the new trail at Kai Lon Preserve. The trailhead

said.

e hilltop seating area is located where

an old summer house’s foundation once

stood, and the project involved clearing that

debris alongside the general trash that had

accumulated over the years. e trust has

also gotten the go-ahead to be connected

with the Goldens Bridge Rail Trail, said Ex-

ecutive Director Shantala DuGay-Iyengar.

“ ere’s future projects, too,” she said.

“My dream is to have a picnic table and

some kind of nature-inspired playground at

the hilltop.”

e land trust thanked McGuire and his

fellow troop members, Jonathan Alia, Wy-

att Bruch, Andrew Lucassen, Drew Mc-

Guire, William Rebori, and Kye Viall, and

McGuire’s friend, Will Matthews, for their

work on the trail.

“ is is such an asset to our community.

is is 10 acres of pristine woodland,” Stultz

said. “For the community to use it, it had to

have a trail, and Jackson provided that.”

e Kai Lon Preserve was donated to the

Lewisboro Land Trust in 2020 by the Fong

family. e preserve was named in honor of Lewisboro Land Trust Co-Chair Bobbe Stultz introduces Eagle Scout
