We are making great progress on the new trail, but there's more to be done. Come help!

Anyone welcome and appreciated! No experience necessary!

Meet in the main parking lot off Rte 31 or, if you get there late, just look for us west of the water tower, south of the old trail.

If the weather looks bad, check back here for updates in the morning to see if we are still working.

play in the dirt!

When you come out for a trail workday, be prepared for the conditions and a good hike. Some volunteers bring a change of clothes, especially during the hot summer months. In cooler weather, dress in multiple thin layers to better regulate your temperature. When it is dry, we usually do a group ride after the trail work is done (and sometimes one before as well). So bring your bike gear. CAMBr will be able to supply you with any hand tools needed. Remember to not over-exert yourself in extreme heat, use tools safely, and only use tools you are comfortable with. One thing to be careful of is poison ivy, though simple precautions will protect you most of the time.

The important stuff:

  • Insect repellant
  • Leather work gloves
  • Hard-soled boots
  • Long pants (Protection from ticks)
  • Hat (Protection from branch tips and thorns)
  • Protective eyewear (Protection from branch tips and thorns)
  • Hydration pack (water bottles get lost)
  • Hooded raincoat (if the forecast dictates)

And don't forget that every volunteer must sign an annual waiver.
