Trails Day Saturday, June 1st, 2024

EMTI always plans for a work day on National Trails Day, the first Saturday in June, and additional work days are scheduled at different times throughout summer and fall as needed. Trail projects include various activities: trail building, trail repair, hanging signage, clearing of overgrowth/downed trees, improving drainage, plantings to control erosion, etc. There is something to do for all ages and skill levels.

Trails Committee believes the focus for 2024 will be trail
work on Sparrow North Loop Trail and preparing the site and staging materials for a new bridge over Mallory Brook.

Call for Volunteer Vegetation Cutters in 2024!!
Certain trail segments in our great little trail network are too difficult and
inaccessible for a mechanized mower to reach. The Trails Committee is
seeking people living nearby who regularly use these segments and would be
willing to volunteer and commit to cutting back the vegetation 2 to 3 times
during the summer. Cutting back the vegetation not only makes trail use more
enjoyable but also keeps the trail tread open/visible and reduces human-tick
interaction. The Trails Committee can train and provide volunteers with a cutter
tool to carry out the needed cutting

Segments where volunteer vegetation cutters are needed include:

*  300 feet of Horseshoe Loop (starting at signed junction with Ormsbee Trail);
*  100 feet of re-routed Ormsbee Trail along the western edge of crop field;
*  200 feet of Ormsbee Trail to the north of the crop field starting at the signed
junction with Horseshoe Loop;
*  100 feet of trail heading west of Center Road parking area; and,
*  Mallory Brook Trail starting from the edge of the old log landing/meadow and
extending down the trail for about 250 feet.

We often have more work to do than volunteers to do it. If you would like to get
more involved as a trail volunteer, please contact Allan Serrano, our volunteer coordinator at:   OR   715-558-9734
