Trail Work Sunday October 16, 2016

We were going to work on the Stouts trail but, Dave was through that trail resetting a culvert and he took care of any trees that were an issue. So we will be starting at the Bove Camp area clearing, that is on corridor 407 at RD 651. I do believe that it is also the Gilman Road. If any one has any questions please call me. If any one is bringing a ATV let me know also. Thank you.

Hope to see you there. Starting time is 8:00 am Sorry about the mess with the first posting, I do not know where it came from. Roy

This Sunday is not going to work for me or Dave Fucci so we are going to move it to Sunday, October 16, 2016. I will post later a time and place.

Our first club meeting of the season is Tuesday night October 11, 2016 at the Southside Steak House on Main Street in Rutland. Hope to see you there!

Trail Work

Last Sunday Dave went out with his excavator and cleaned out the water bars from RD 651 at the Old Boves Camp and down around RD 16 then to RD 672 on the Tin Shany Road and then down to the Groomer Shed at RD69. On his way he moved lots of trees that were in the way or were leaning towards the trail.

Mark Quesnel and Adrian Sanford-Wilson were with me at the Stone house area. We debrushed the two trails going out the back of the Stone house and the trail coming into there from the CCC Road. Thank you for all your help. read more

I was out getting lot of our signs out of the woods today before the CCC Road gets opened up. It was a cold and damp day.We have several of the wooden signs that need replacing and also a lot of the VAST signs are faded really bad. We will need to replace these before the start of the next season. If any one is interested in helping with getting our signs back in shape let me know. Oh by the way it was snowing as I was taking down the signs!  What is up with that! read more

Trail Report January 21, 2016

Scott Ryan was out this weekend clearing trees and checking the trails. Thank you again for all your help! Dad and I went out yesterday and cleared all the big trees and opened all the gates and packed all the trails. It was a very slow go it took 16 hours but they are open now.

The riding is not great but if you go carefully you can ride. There have been riders out already. We need more snow!

Ride Safely and Ride Right! read more

Trail Work December 20, 2015

I know that every one has a lot to do at this time of the year but if any one has a 4 wheeler and has some time it would be great if they could go on some of the trails and clear any downed trees.  Dave with his excavator and Mike Stewart and Scott Ballard went from the Highway Garage across the Wheelerville road to Dick Howe’s property clearing that area last weekend. Thank you for that! Also I am going to be putting up the intersection signs on Sunday and if there is any one that would like to help me that also would be great. I am going to get to the groomer shed by 8:00 AM. If any one has any questions please call me @ 779-5228. read more

Cross Trail Update

I walked the trail last week with Lisa. For the most part she was OK with it as long as we keep an eye on it and if it starts to show signs of erosion we need to fix it. The key to it is to keep the waterbars clean before fail. The part that we straightened she said was ok also but, as I know, we should ask first. I said the sharp corner was dangerous and after the logging there was a straight line with no trees to cut just clean up what the loggers left. So we worked things out once again.
She said that after they get the “Jeffords State Forest ” piece they’ll want waterbars in some ares there so I said to get in touch with us and we will get the job done so it is good for a snowmobile trail. That will be something for next year. read more

I do not think that we need to have a work session this Sunday. I was looking at the map and all of the trails have been looked at. Also it looks like it will be raining in the morning. If anyone knows of something that needs to be done please let me know and I may change my mind.

Dave, Rick and Fred repaired the cross trail I talked about before. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! It shows how some one that understands what we need and also how to keep the trail in good shape for the weather conditions can do. read more

Trail Report for October 18, 2015

Yesterdays work session had 4 members present. It was Dave with excavator, Dad, Mark, and myself. We got the big overhanging tree down on 4&7 just north of RD16 and debrushed that section up past RD65. Dave went out and was prepping the cross trail between RD65 and RD651 for Rick Hubbard as he is fixing it this week. We also did some debrushing on that trail also. It was a cold day if you were not working. We hope that Mark got thawed out! read more
