Join the New England Trail Committee and AMC-Berkshire Chapter (now Western MA Chapter) Trail volunteers for an interchapter event: basic maintenance day on NET Section 16. You may know this section for the spectacular Erving Ledges and Hermit Castle. We will do a 5-mile loop hike that will include both of these spots while clearing a few blowdowns, raking out leaves and other basic maintenance as needed. It will be a great way for new people to see what we do on our trails, and ask questions about helping adopt (or co-adopting) a section of trail of your own. Holding up ledges not required ;)
We plan on being out there for 4-5 hours or so, depending on lunch time and work required. Bad weather will cancel. There is some moderate up and down on the trail, so the hike itself should not be regarded as "easy".
This event has ended, but we have lots of upcoming activities! See our activities page for things to do.
