Photos of Trail Work

Beginning in 2015, trail work on our section of the Long Trail is managed by David Morrissey. Please contact David if you are interested in helping out!

We have several photos of work parties in action. (To open a photo album: Click on the image or link in the caption. When you're done, close the window to return to this page.)

After coffee and doughnuts, our well-prepared Trail crew leader, David Morrissey, divides up the crew into two groups of six.

On April 30, our initial joint effort with the Mt. Abe Environmental Club was a big success with a crew of 16 students & 10 adults, working mostly on the Sucker Brook Trail.
After parking at Forest Road 57 trailhead, four of our 10 member trail crew arrive at the junction of Sucker Brook Trail & Long Trail. Six others tackled work on the Long Trail south from Middlebury Gap.
Doug and Chip headed toward relocation site near Middlebury College's Snow Bowl ski trail.
Great turn out! Instructions given to the 17 volunteers.
