SNH NEMBA Bear Brook SP Trail Work

Date

9/26/15 (All day)

Hi Folks!
We have some exciting projects in the works at Bear Brook State Park. We have had several meeting with DRED (IE the people in charge of making decisions in the park) and they are very willing to listen to our suggestions regarding trail improvements and new trails. This cooperative attitude may not last, so we are trying to get as many of these projects done in the next year. These projects include Hedgehog Ledge, Bear Brook trail, Bear Hill, Broken Boulder and some new trails that are in the process of approval. We will be alternating Saturdays and Sundays to accommodate people's schedules. So mark your calenders and come join us for some hard work to help make this park more of a mountain biking gem!

Saturday, September 26, 2015. Contact Kathy 603-724-7187
Sunday, October 4, 2015. This will be the clean up day to get ready for the Boogie 10/11/15.

Look for specific meeting times and locations closer to the day. Or visit the Southern NH NEMBA Facebook page. Hope to see you there! Kathy

Work Days

Date

Repeats every month on June, July, August, September, October on the first Monday until Mon Oct 12 2015 .
6/1/15 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Here is our work day schedule for this summer.  I'm posting here, Facebook, and the NEMBA webpage.  If things are cancelled due to rain or something else we'll post to Facebook and Google Group.

1st and 3rd Monday of each month.  Times and locations to be posted in advance.

2nd Saturday of each month as well.  Same deal.

Watch for Brattleboro work days, as well as a work day in Putney on the Cider House course on Saturday June 13th.

Possible projects to include, but not limited to:
  • There are 4 crossings on Far Side that could be either armored or bridged - including the two lower ones not far from 48T, the big mud hole on the upper part of the trail not far from the upper trailhead, and there's one more mud hole that could also be armored with rock.
  • Wet spot on Drop and Chute
  • The mud hole on Exit 1 (very close to the Woods Rd and the start of Exit 2)
  • The little bridge at the very very bottom of Bridges Tr is broken
  • The little bridge across Jump at its beginning - something wider?
  • Bitten/Skinny/mysterious new trail
  • The creek crossing at the bottom of Far Side near where D&C comes out.
  • Improve/enhance Goose Pond Trail between Labyrinth and Outback
  • Lewis Pond bridge extension
  • And of course, hang those signs
As always, if you see something that can be easily repaired have at it.  Like limbing out trails, removing those little stumps in the middle of trails, etc.  If you find something bigger out there that needs special equipment or a crew please post it up.
