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.
Things to bring:

Bog-bridges are used to assist hikers traversing through wet areas of trail. Though they make getting through wet areas easier, their main purpose is to protect the underlying vegetation and minimize erosion.

A backpack with your favorite gear which should include:
  • appropriate clothing (June is a warm weather month in northern NH)
  • plenty of  drinking water
  • work gloves
  • a basic first aid kit
  • spade shovel
  • brush loppers
  • 3 or 5# hammer
  • bow saw
When: Saturday June 6, 2015 at 9:00am
Where to meet: At the pull off along Route 3 in Pittsburg, NH. It is on the right side of Route 3 (headed north), approximately 4 miles beyond the road to Lake Francis State Park. This is the north start for the Round Pond Brook Trail and the south start to the 800′ Bog-Bridge Trail.
