Here are a few Cohos Trail volunteer days to put on your calendar. Come join us if you can to help make improvements on the mighty Cohos Trail.

June 2nd – Moose Alley Trail Rebuild

On June 2nd, National Trails Day, come up to Pittsburg, NH, and help us bring back to life the Moose Alley Trail. The trail saw extensive logging this last year that left it a bit rough and full of brush. Some parts of the trail will have to be completely restored including a small section of the Falls in the River Trail.

When: 9:00 AM

Where: In Pittsburg, NH, just off Route 3 on Magalloway Road. Meet at the bridge over the Connecticut River on Magalloway Road. (Directions: From Pittsburg, NH, take Route 3 north until you see Magalloway Road on the right; drive a mile down and look for CT signs and folks getting ready.)

What to Bring: Your energy, gloves, lunch, water. Extra tools are needed if you have them: loppers, small hand saws, and some small shovels to level trail.

Spread the word to all your hiker buddies and remember to give back to the trails you use.

June 23rd & 24th – Devil’s Rest Shelter Build

Do you want to help build a shelter on the Cohos Trail? Come to Stark, NH, on Saturday, June 23rd, to help carry in (a short distance) and erect a post and beam three-sided shelter built by Lancaster’s historic Garland Mill Timberframes. We have a lot of work to do Saturday, including building a composting latrine. There also may be work on Sunday if we need to finish a few items.

When: 8:00 AM

Where: Meet us at the Christine Lake parking area at 8:00 AM to walk to the site. It is almost a mile walk in on flat dirt roads. Or you can meet us at 8:00 AM at the Gate for Amos Emery Road and jump in a truck for a ride in.

What to Bring: Hammer, cordless drill (if you have one), lunch, water, and gloves.
