YES Plan volunteers start Thursday, June 4th through Monday, June 15th.  We welcome other volunteers on these days.

Youth Works starts Monday, June 22nd. These folks will be in the park on Monday’s and Tuesday’s till August 4th. We welcome other volunteers to join us.

These volunteer days start at 9AM in the front entrance of Pine Hill Park.

 

Please do not ride on trails in this condition. Your volunteers would greatly appreciate it.

Carriage Trail is closed to mountain bikes

 

We are all patiently waiting for the Carriage Trail to dry out. Please stay off the Carriage Trail with your mountain bike.   VYCC did a lot of drainage work last year but trail still could be soft in April and May. Please be respectful of our trail that was many years in the making.

The Carriage Trail came into concept in 2007. It took us 6 years to get approval from all the landowners.

Thanks to a VTrans Grant we were able to have VYCC come in 2013 to make the Carriage Trail sustainable. VYCC returned on the same grant in 2014 and put more drainage in areas that we had problems with in the spring.

We are extremely hopeful that spring of 2015 the trail will dry out quicker so we can play on it quicker.

A huge thank you to the private and public landowners for allowing us to ‘officially’ open this trail.
