Event Description: 

Join us on the Metacomet Trail as we continue this ongoing effort to improve  the climb up to Rattlesnake Mountain.  This highly-trafficked section of the New England Trails is well-known for being muddy and difficult for much of the year.  CFPA and our volunteers have been working diligently to construct a turnpike and armored swale to harden the trail and improve hiking conditions.   Friday is calling for temperatures in the low 40s, please dress warmly.

Work will include: gathering stone to armor the swale, and framing/construction of the new turnpike.

What to bring: lunch, water, work clothes, gloves, sturdy boots

Tools will be provided.

Please leave all furry friends at home
