The trails at St. Albans Town Forest criss cross through the woods and access a scenic beaver pond. The town has worked with partners to enhance the existing trails and develop new trails at the town forest for all to enjoy in all four seasons. 

The Town is also working in partnership with Audubon Vermont and the Department of Forest, Parks and Recreation by providing the Town Forest as a demonstration and testing site for Migratory Songbird habitat enhancement. The project Foresters for the Birds helps landowners support healthy forests through enhanced wildlife habitat and timber management. The birds protected by this project include Black-throated Blue Warbler, Eastern Wood Peewee, Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker,  Wood thrush, and Veery.
