The land that now comprises Wright Park was given to the town of Middlebury in 1982 by Willard T. Jackson in honor of his Middlebury College classmate Charles R. Wright. Consisting of about 150 acres, there are three main trails running north/south through the park. The White Circle trail runs next to Otter Creek and past a small bay near a thirty foot cliff, and past a marsh. The White Triangle trail runs along the eastern boundary near railroad tracks, and the TAM/White Square trail goes through the central part of the park. There are several other cross trails that connect to these main trails and form loops. Detailed maps are posted at the north and south entrances for your reference.
The trail passes by the Sumner Homestead 1875 historic landmark, Belden Falls, and Arnold Suspension Bridge.
