Ashuwillticook Rail Trail Parking, Cheshire,
Women's crew to do boundary maintenance in Cheshire. We will meet same time and place as the mixed group on the same project but then do a different section of the boundary. Maintaining these boundaries is essential to preserving the AT hiking experience in the narrow trail corridor. Work includes hiking off-trail while clipping brush, painting blazes and installing signs. Part of the boundary is on slopes with uneven footing and thick brush. Participants will travel 4-6 miles on this all-day event. Bring lunch, snacks and plenty of water, bug and tick repellant/head net. Dress for the weather, which may vary during the day. Paint will not wash out of clothing--don't wear your best outfit. Wear sturdy footwear. Bring your own work gloves, loppers if you have them, face covering and hand sanitizer. If you have a high visibility vest (orange or similar bright color), please bring that as well.
