Work Day - Monday October 14th
Weather forecast looking sunny for next Monday Oct 14 Columbus Day, and it being the last day the summit chair runs til winter, we can do this: meet 0900 that day at Quick Shop gas station next to Bubba's, Rte. 103 Newbury NH. If needed, spot a car at Mt. Sunapee Resort. Leave remaining cars at east end Newbury Trail and hike west uphill 2.5 miles to Jack & June Jct. cutting brush and raking drains on the way, then west 1.2 mi. to summit with long break on White Ledges. At summit, last chair down is 1515 so we probably have more time to hang out and enjoy the views. We descend via summit chair, drive back to our remaining cars at east end Newbury Trail, and return to Quick Shop for refreshments.
Usual gear: food, 2 qt. water, leather boots, long pants, BYO work gloves or we issue you a pair. BYO tools although we have plenty.
IF we have enough crew, we can send a team up chairlift when it opens at 1000. They hike over to top of Andrew Brook Trail and descend that, brushing and raking drains as they go. We spot their car on Mountain Rd. at the base of that trail, and all meet at Quick Shop for refreshments. We stay in contact by cell phone where we can.
Please reply all to sign up for this day, and reply me if you have any questions. It will be grand to see everyone who can come, and to hike together. Thanks for your work, it is noticed.

May 4th - Mt. Sunapee 9:00 am
Meet at the Newbury Quick-stop at the Junction of Routes 103 & 103A
Join us for a trail day on Mt Sunapee! We will be working to rake drains and trim back brush, especially the hobble bush while the leaves are small so we are able to see the stems to cut them!
We'll send teams to various trails we tend on that mountain, do our work, and meet after for cold drinks.
