About the Event
We will be hiking out to the Notch Trail to work on a very muddy section of trail that has been rutted out with limited options to reroute. To remedy this problem we will be building a turnpike structure out of nature materials found in the area: Hemlock Trees, rock and soil.
A turnpike is a way to get the water off of the trail tread by raising the tread up and stabilizing the surface. Work will include peeling logs, hauling bucket loads of dirt and rock while working in and around a wet buggy area. Snacks and refreshments will be provided after the event.
What to bring
Drive up to the summit of Mount Agamenticus and park in the summit parking lot. Then walk over to the tan barn building located on the west side of the summit.
