Middlebury Trail Enthusiasts, as the growing group of trail runners is known, is working to connect outdoor enthusiasts with similar activity levels and goals while expanding awareness and responsible use of local trail resources, said Heather Flewelling, an MTE organizer, in a post on the group’s webpage.

Inside my house, I sliced open the tape with a folding knife and peeled back the lid.
