We need YOUR help on Saturday, October 7th, meet in Giorgetti parking lot at 9AM. We are going to raise the center section of Hour Glass Bridge up out of the mud and water. We will shuttle material and tools in to powerline on the Pond Rd. From there we need to walk them in. Please consider coming and helping out.
Our newest trail “Jigsaw” is now open. Thanks to the hard work of our heroes—dedicated volunteers who put in nearly 1800 hours of work this summer.
The trail is over 1250 feet with another 200 feet of optional trail. There are 9 rock rideovers and a really cool cliff section. There’s also a ton of rock work that you can’t see that lies under the trail bed for drainage.
We can’t thank our volunteers nearly enough for all the sweat and blood they left behind. Here’s a small tribute. Thank you Keith Wight and Shelley Lutz for focusing all the effort where it was needed and again to Shelley for all the photos and video skills:
Experience Jigsaw for yourself. Signs are now up for easier location. Look for it at intersections 36 & 42.
If you’d like to join the ranks of our Elite Trail Heroes, there’s a chance coming up on Saturday August 26. Check out the details here.
Saturday, August 26th. 8:15-noon bring water and mosquito repellent. The project is to rake out a connector trail between Dewey Wood Rd and Ridge Runner on the Redfield Trails. Meet at the front entrance of the park.
Green Mountain Power will be working on the powerlines in the park this winter. Please DO NOT park at the end of Evergreen Ave starting Tuesday, December 27th till the end of February. GMP will be moving in large machinery and stone and need room to move vehicles.
Mountain bikers be aware on Underdog as GMP will be putting a very large mat down across the trail to move machinery. This will protect the trail.
