6/4 Pitcher Mtn

Last Thursday we did patrol Winslow Trail on Mt Kearsarge, where we cleaned all the drains, sawed one blowdown, then descended Barlow Trail back to our cars and the cold drinks. We may return to Winslow Trail for level 2 repairs later this year.

This Saturday June 4 we join Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway Trail Club at Pitcher Mtn, Rte. 123 Stoddard NH at 830 AM.

We plan to add a few small waterbars on a narrow bit of trail as a warm-up to a bigger job, which is to add rock steps to stabilize the trail on a steep slope.  I am told there is enough rock nearby.  Once we have a plan we’ll quarry the rocks and move them to the site, then we will set them to harden the trail just downhill from the fire tower. We will do the job in phases so everyone has the chance to learn the techniques of moving and setting rock.

Please wear leather boots, long pants, and bring work gloves and your day pack with food and water (at least 2 qt.) for the day. MSGTC serves pizza when the tools are clean and stowed.

Please email me at crgsnbrn@yahoo.com if you plan to attend, and direct any questions there also. Thank you.
