Happy New Year !
Welcome to our new “News” Format.
Highlights: Big Dig This Spring, BreakAway in March, CT Passes 200 Miles, Trail Building 101 Classes, First Aid/CPR Classes and much more for 2017.
We hope the new format following a series of “posts” rather and a long page of entries for the entire year will make communication a bit faster with our volunteers and hikers.
This year watch for Spring Big Dig dates. More Trail Building 101 classes along with Crew Leader Training sessions.
