With help from volunteers, the committee works all year long to keep the trails in town clear of debris, to maintain trail markings, and make sure trail fliers are available. You can help by adopting a trail and clearing it as you hike there, or notifying us if there is a larger issue.
Mill Brook Trail Workdays: Sun, Sept 19, 9:00 am-noon; Tues, Sept 21 10:30 am-noon. Meet at library parking lot to join group.
This project includes replacing several small bridges near School Street (not the washed out snowmobile bridge, this year), adding a length of boardwalk to the “bridge to nowhere” across the marsh by the bend in Dickinson Street, adding some bog bridges, trail upkeep work, and invasive species removal.
We had an extremely successful work weekend Sept 5-6, and were able to get much of the construction and major trail work finished. There is still some trail pruning and endless invasive species management to do.
Invasive Species Removal
Invasive species being removed include buckthorn, barberry, multi-flora rose, bittersweet. Bring gloves, pruners, shovel, other tools as desired. We will bring weed wrenches to use.
Prune overhanging vegetation on entire trail system. Re-establish overgrown trail in the NE side of the system.
