At our Sept. Exec Comm. meeting, Bread Loaf Section Trails Manager David Morrissey reported on three full days of work, Sept 9, 10, 11, with 20 Middlebury College volunteers installing a set of stairs on the LT near the Snow Bowl, as well as work on water bars south of Rt. 125. Matt Shea from GMC supervised the stairs project, and David Morrissey worked the full 3 days. Another section of the trail needs stairs, which will require 5 days of trail crew labor plus materials. T This project is on a heavily used part of the trail en route to Lake Pleiad. Some puncheon replacement is needed this fall, to be scheduled October 29/30.
If you're interested in learning about trail work in our Section, read our Trail Work Procedures. David will send out email alerts a few weeks prior to each workday. Weather permitting, there are always volunteer opportunities which can be done individually or in a group! If you have questions about trail maintenance in our section or to volunteer, please contact David. Thank you!
