Trail Maintenance Rumford White Cap

Date: Sunday, May 21, 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

This moderately challenging hike & trail maintenance is the club's annual work with the Mahoosuc Land Trust on the crown jewel of their properties. The views are spectacular. We will patrol some of the trails removing blowdowns, clearing water bars and cutting back brush. The club & land trust will provide tools but BYOT if you have them. We will provide the know how if you don't know what to do and how to do it.
