Trail Notes 8-6-16

TRAIL NOTES:
The Trio Trail is now 99 percent complete, signed, blazed, and very easy to follow. A few logs have to be cut out of the trail as yet, and some minor tweaking needs to be carried out in several spots, but the pathway is easy to navigate and is a great pleasure to be out on now. The views out to big Sugarloaf and its neighboring peaks are a delight.

The NorthWoods Stewardship Center

TRAIL NOTES: The NorthWoods Stewardship Center crew of eight has completed work on the new Trio Trail from the Percy Loop Camp on the north flank of North Percy Peak all the way to Trio Ponds Road, where the path links up with the new Pond Brook Falls Trail. They have pulled out their tents and gear and are headed up to work on the last bit of restoration work on the Deer Mountain Firetower Trail five miles south of the Canadian border.

Proposed new trail

From Kim Nilsen:

Here’s an updated map of a proposed new trail directly north out of Coleman State Park in Stewartstown to the easternmost inlets to Lake Francis in Pittsburg.

Bushwhacked quite a bit of the route and road walked all the way back in about 13 hours. I’m happy to report I’m still alive. I don’t recommend the bushwhack. Old logging cuts have a way of making passage a bit less than pleasant.

Kiosks

Putting final touches on graphic work for display panels for sign kiosks for the Cohos Trail. Here are four additional examples. The image of the high elevation bog at Deer Mt. and North Percy Peak are courtesy of Ken MacGray. Robert John Koslow donated the image of First Connecticut Lake with Mt. Magalloway looming in the distance. And John Compton took the fine photo of Pond Brook Falls in the Nash Stream Forest. In a day or two, we’ll post another batch.

Trail Notes – July 7th 2016

TRAIL NOTES:
You folks are rocking the mighty Cohos Trail. Lots of interest. Lots of sales of the new maps and databooks. More trekkers out on the trail than at any time in memory.

Plenty of work has been done on the new Trio Trail from the Percy Loop Camp campsite on the north flank of North Percy Peaks all the way to the Trio Pond Road where the new Pond Brook Falls Trail meets that lane. The NorthWoods Stewardship Center crews are hammering out the big swing around Long Mountain as we speak and making substantial progress.

How to make more Cohos Trail?

Copy the link below, share it, send it to Pluto and back, and help our little all-volunteer but mighty nonprofit trail building association raise $7,500 in the next three months so we can build more shelters, composting latrines, miles of new trail, bog bridges, and so much more.

Help Build Bog-Bridges on National Trails Day on the Cohos Trail – June 6, 2015

National Trails Day
Are you looking to have fun and perhaps get a little dirty on National Trails Day? Come join The Cohos Trail Association on this National Trails Day – Saturday, June 6, 2015 – in the largest township east of the Mississippi River… in Pittsburg, New Hampshire where we will build bog-bridge spans along the newly constructed Round Pond Brook Trail. If enough hands are available, we will also have time to do basic trail maintenance along the trail in this area. This would include brushing back the trail where needed, removing blow-downs, and touching up paint blazes as needed.
