Powerlines in 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.

Thank you for your cooperation.

A few sections of trails are now closed for winter

We have closed Exit Strategy, Lichen Rock(Overlook Trail) and the steep hill on Droopy Muffin between Intersections 30 and 30A. These trails will be closed until spring when ground thaws out and dries out. Please be respectful on the trail closures.

 

 

2017 Community Work Days

Community Work Day: Saturday, August 26th at 8:15 AM till noon. Meet at the front entrance. The project is raking out a new connector trail from Dewey Wood Rd to Ridge Runner on the Redfield Trails.

Youth Works is back this coming week July 10th, 11th from 9:30 to 2:30 if you are interested in helping out. Community Work night is Thursday, July 13th at 6pm. All volunteers will be up near Intersection 42 working on finishing the new trail.

Community work night: Thursday, June 29th at 6pm IS CANCELLED, RESCHEDULED FOR Thursday, July 13th, 6pm. Meet at the tool trailer in the front entrance. We will be working on a drainage on Rembrandt’s Brush and some work on Evergreen Falls if we have enough warm bodies.

The new trail is started across from Broken Handlebar. It is not completely broken out and we could use more help in getting holes filled in with small rock, continuing the removing of organic material and finish work to get drainage’s in,  good outslope so the trail drains. We will continue to work on this during the summer.

Youth Works is back for it’s 11th year. We meet at the front entrance on Monday’s and Tuesday’s at 9:15AM work till about 2:15. Come join us for an hour. Anyone is welcome to join us.  Bring food, water and mosquito repellent we’ll supply tools and gloves.

Broken Handlebar Gets Some TLC

Broken Handlebar now has an uphill option as well as a downhill only option. We are calling it Broken Handlebar South and North. Broken Handlebar South is the techy XC two way section and Broken Handlebar North is ONE WAY downhill. Both start at intersection 30A and come out at intersection 42. Thank you very much to this year YES plan groups who have made this possible.
