Hi Club Members and Friends,
We are having a trail work day on Saturday, March 11th for the new Head Pond Connector Trail. We will be meeting at Gord’s Store in Milan at 8:30am, and then going out to the end of Head Pond Road to get started at 9:00am.
Here are directions for meeting us at Gord’s Corner Store; From Rt. 3 in Groveton, take Rt. 110 east 13.5 miles to the junction of Rt. 110 and Rt. 110A and you will see Gord’s Corner Store. Gord’s has coffee, breakfast sandwiches and lunch sandwiches so it is a great place to stock up for the trail work day.
For those going directly to the work site, take, Rt. 110 to Head Pond Road (located .4 miles west of the old Jericho Motorsports). Follow Head Pond Road north 3.5 miles. At this point, the snowmobile trail turns off the main road to the right. DO NOT FOLLOW THIS SNOWMOBILE TRAIL. Continue straight and the road turns to the left and ends in a log yard ¼ mile further ahead.
From this log yard, we will be taking ATV’s going due north along an old single wide snowmobile trail.
We need volunteers to cut and throw brush so we can widen this trail so an excavator can fit down it. Please bring gloves, water and lunch since this project will take at least 4-5 hours to complete. If you have a chain saw, please bring it along. Dress for cold weather since temps are not supposed to go above 20 degrees.
You are welcome to bring your ATV but you can also walk in or hitch a ride with one of our other volunteers.
Free accommodations are available for anyone coming from out of town - call or send an email for details. Thank you for helping with this critical project.
