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.
Bring usual gear for day hike incl. plenty of food, 2 qt. water, raingear, sun hat. BYO work gloves or we'll issue a pair. Wear leather boots, long pants.
Please email us to let us know you will be joining! See you on the Trail!
