Burgess Discovery Trail

The Burgess Elementary School PTO, along with assistance from the Sturbridge Trails Committee and Boy Scout Troop 161, built a 1/2 mile handicap accessible nature trail. The Trail starts behind the lower ball field at Burgess Elementary School. The goal of The Burgess Discovery Trail is to provide an outside area for all students and staff to experience nature in a safe and educational environment.

The Trail can be used for many purposes, such as physical fitness, science and art classes, and viewing animals in their natural environment. There are Great Horned Owls which frequent the Trail, along with deer and other wild life.
