Lets try again! But rain is predicted so check here on Sunday
Every year, our organization devotes a few of our Sundays to keeping the trails we love to hike on, in good hiking condition. This Sunday, we’re going to a section that the late Chuck Winship, one of the founders of our hiking group, dedicated a portion of his then thriving maple farm, as the start of a scenic public hiking trail through Springwater.
During the summertime, we have moved our hike starting time up to 4 PM, to avoid the mid day heat, when only mad dogs and Englishmen venture forth. This change in time begins today. We will meet, at 4 PM, at the Sugarhouse on Pardee Hollow Rd. Bring work gloves and loppers. If you can bring a string trimmer, we could use two or three. A couple of small saws be available for larger branches.
In our 2 hour work period, we hope to cover the main trail, between Coates Rd. and Pardee Hollow, the seasonal access, the trillium side trail and,the steep extension between Pardee Hollow and Tabors Corners as well as the more level bypass. We will split into several groups to ensure we get as much done as possible.
It has been our policy to provide a substantial dinner to those who participate in these trail work jobs. We will do this at the small field in front of the Sugar House. You need to bring a lawn chair, but no food this time (beverages might come in handy though).
