Trail work will continue on Saturday, August 1 (2015) on the Rim Trail at Mount Sunapee State Park. The tasks at hand include building rock steps and drains and whatever other trail work is possible, according to Craig Sanborn of the Cardigan Highlanders Volunteer Trail Crew.

“We’ll work safe and build good durable fixtures following the guidelines in the Appalachian Trail Fieldbook. If enough people attend, we’ll orient a crew using rope puller and rigging to move rock on straight pulls,” Sanborn said. Participants are asked to reference the AT Fieldbook, “please read page 13 and pp. 52-71. Then, bring them with you to help others learn.”

“Please don’t avoid this day just because you haven’t done rock work before,” added Sanborn. “Anyone willing to try can learn to move and set them safely, using picks, shovels, crowbars, and webbing, etc.”

For more information about volunteering with the Cardigan Highlanders, email Craig Sanborn at crgsnbrn@yahoo.com.

Volunteers interested in helping out on August 1st, email Sanborn prior to Saturday morning.
