Please sign up in advance to help the DEC utilize volunteer help most efficiently. To sign up, email <email@example.com> and let them know you are coming and you specifically want to work on St Regis Mt. Meet at 8 AM, Saturday, June 6 at Berkeley Green for general instructions for the day. Check for more details via the website and Facebook page.
The trail work being proposed is as follows;
Saint Regis Mountain Trail
This project will address a problem where hikers are using multiple routes to go through a muddy and wet area. It will involve building 30 feet of bog bridging. Volunteers will need to carry lumber and tools about 0.4 miles. Multiple trips from the road to the work site will probably be needed. Sills for the bog bridging will be dug into the ground and decking will need to be nailed into the sills.
Pressure treated lumber: 12- 4×6 (cut to 4’ lengths)
8- 2×10 at 10’
Hardware: 4”, 6”, and 10” spikes
Tools: hammers, mattock, shovels, hoes
Number of volunteers: 6-10
Keep up to date via the website and Facebook page.
We hope to see you there.
