ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) — A hospital in St. Johnsbury is collaborating with a nonprofit to construct a recreational trail on their property.

The Caledonian Record reports Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital is working with the Caledonia Trail Collaborative to build a recreational trail for walkers, runners and mountain bikers.

The project is intended to promote public health and conservation and would expand upon existing trails and logging roads on the property.
