The Cohos Trail includes 170 miles of wilderness hiking from southern Crawford Notch in the White Mountain National Forest through the Great North Woods to the Canadian border in Pittsburg, NH.
The Cohos Trail Assocation manages this far-flung trail, and they have organized two special volunteer events this spring. Get to know this incredible part of New England by spending one or more days helping other volunteers do critical work on this through-trail!
Moose Alley Trail Rebuild
Saturday, June 2 meet at 9:00 a.m. in Pittsburg, NH
Volunteers will be removing debris, cutting obstacles out of the trail, rerouting the pathway, adding blaze stakes and blaze paint throughout, filling skidder ruts, and the like in order to make the trail route passable for hikers. Join the fun and help get this important section of the trail in good working order!
Devil's Rest Shelter Construction
Saturday, June 23, meet at 8:00 a.m. in Stark, NH
The association will construct its fifth lean-to shelter and attendant composting latrine on the Cohos Trail.

Hone your carpentry skills and join the crew!
