SNH NEMBA -Bear Brook Trail Care CANCELED

Date

4/26/14 9:00am

trail event is cancelled while State reviews all trail usage
we will be hosting a intermediate ride instead at the toll booth parking lot 9am

We will be working on clearing the trails that were damaged by the most recent logging over the winter. Meet at 8:45 at the toll booth on Deerfield Road. We will be working at the bottom of Sentinel Pine. If we have enough people and time, we will then head over to clean up Hemlock. If you have a chainsaw and feel comfortable using it, please bring it along. Otherwise I'll plan on having the tool trailer at the site with all the tools we will need. I think it will still be too wet to ride at that point, so it's just a work day this time. Any questions, call Kathy 603-724-7187. Pass this along to anyone that might be interested. Hope to see you there! Read more about SNH NEMBA -Bear Brook Trail Care CANCELED

Free Screening of the film Blood Road

Date

10/18/17 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Wednesday, October 18 at 7 PM
 
Whetstone Church
 
Brattleboro-Keene will be hosting a free screening of the film Blood Road.

Reserve you free ticket at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/blood-road-tickets-38259627576

Blood Road follows the journey of ultra-endurance mountain bike athlete Rebecca Rusch and her Vietnamese riding partner, Huyen Nguyen, as they pedal 1,200 miles along the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail through the dense jungles of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. Their goal: to reach the crash site and final resting place of Rebecca’s father, a U.S. Air Force pilot shot down over Laos some 40 years earlier.

During this poignant voyage of self discovery, the women push their bodies to the limit while learning more about the historic ‘Blood Road’ they’re pedaling and how the Vietnam War shaped their lives in different ways.

Meet at 9AM on Summit Rd in Keene. Just a bit past the YMCA there is a big pull off on the left.

We'll split into appropriate groups based on desired pace/ride length/distance and head up. We can access the Food Network, Stonewall Farm, and points in between.

Rides will try to wrap up between 12-1, and then we'll head to my place at 733 Hurricane Rd. Just over 3 miles from the trail head.

BBQ, fire, socialization. Kids/significant others welcome.

You are welcome to attend just the ride, ride + BBQ, or just the BBQ.

Bring your own drinks and something to share.  The chapter will grill up some burgers, hot dogs, and veggie burgers.

If it is pouring, we'll forgo the ride, I'll through the garage doors up, and we'll just social/eat/drink.

I'll be putting together a sign-up so we can have rough #s.

Description

Wasserman Park is one of Merrimack's best known recreation areas. It has a dog park, a playground , tennis courts, playing fields and miles of trails. Wasserman's 46 acres directly abut the town's 87 acre Wasserman Conservation Area. But most poeple refer to both as Wasserman Park. Wasserman also has a sandy beach, though it's only open to Merrimack residents.

Wasserman has many miles of well maintained trails. One, the Quarry Trail, leads to the nearby Horse Hill Nature Preserve. A 563 acre property that itself hosts about 15 miles of trails. Attempting to do both in one day would be a heroic undetaking. The Gilmore Hill Memorial Forest can also be reached from Wasserman.

Wasserman's trails, especially the singletracks are tight, interesting and fun. Quite a bit of trail work has gone into them and this will be obvious as you explore them.

The best place to park is at the Dog Park parking lot. From there head back towards the Park's entry road, cross it by the Park & Recreation Office, and at the end of the Resident's Parking Lot look for a trail going into the woods. (See the map above on the right.)

You'll enjoy Wasserman Park. The trails will bring you back again and again. Oh! And almost every one of them are just as much fun to ride in both direction. Read more about Wasserman Park
