We have had a very successful series of fall trailwork trips.
On Oct 15 a group of 11 Burr Burton Academy Freshmen plus 1 teacher and 2 GMC members cleared the water bars from Rt 11/30 to the south summit of Bromley. They then ere able to walk down the work road to the baselodge where they were picked up for the trip back to school. The group included 5 exchange students from Ecuador.
On Oct 20 the entire fifth and sixth grade from the Mountain School in Winhall plus two teachers, several parents and three GMC’ers cleared the water bars from Mad Tom Notch to the summit of Styles Peak.
On Oct 22 the entire seventh and eighth grade from the Mountain School in Winhall plus two teachers, several parents, and three GMC’ers cleared the water bars from mad Tom Notch to the south summit of Bromley.
Finally, on Oct 25 eleven energetic GMC members, including GMC Executive Director Mike DeBonis, hiked into Grifftih Lake and then cleared the water bars south from Griffith Lake to the summit of Styles Peak and then hiked out to Mad Tom Notch, admiring the work of the Mountain School students on the way down.
Our entire 10 mile stretch of trail is ready for the winter now thanks to the great work of all these volunteers.
