Cut it Out! Essential Trail Maintenance

  • Dates: 21 – 21 Jul, 2018
  • Location: Sherman , Connecticut, United States
  • Address: Route 55

Tall grasses and overgrown bushes along the Trail pose challenges. They make hiking harder and increase exposure to ticks carrying illness, and if gone unchecked for too long it can make the Trail hard to follow.

Join the Connecticut Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club as they perform the essential trail maintenance practice of brushing annual growth and mowing near Ten Mile River camp.

The group will be meeting at the hiker parking lot on Route 55 in Sherman, Connecticut - fifty yards east of the New York State line- at 9 a.m on Saturday, July 21st. Be sure to wear sturdy boots, long pants, and work gloves. Also, bring your own lunch, personal snacks, a rain jacket, insect repellent, and plenty of water.
