SE MA NEMBA Trail Build Day 2

Date

11/14/21 9:00am

SE MA NEMBA New Trail Build at Poquanticut Brook Management Area - Easton, MA

Date: November 14 SUNDAY

Start time:  9:00 AM we will work until 1PM. Pizza Lunch will be provided for all volunteers.

Meet Location: Meet at Edwin Keach Field Parking Lot. 49 Chestnut St, North Easton, MA 02356. Plenty of parking.

What to Bring:  Work Gloves, Wear long work pants & work boots, and bring eye protection. Please bring your own snacks and water to drink. Anyone who is joining the bridge build crew, and has an impact driver or a screw gun (with spare battery) please bring it.

Tools: Trail building tools will be provided by NEMBA.

On Sunday, November 14th, I will be leading the first of two trail work days for my Eagle Scout Project, and I'm looking for volunteers. My name is Owen Eldridge, I’ve been working with the town on this project for almost two years now, and I'm pleased to announce that my project was awarded a Recreational Trail Grant.

For the last 6 months, I've been planning, cutting trail corridors and preparing for the final build days, and I’m nearing the last major steps of this project.

On this day, there are two activities planned that I need volunteers for: 

The first and biggest priority is to build two bridges, a 240’ bridge and a second bridge 180’. The materials for this project are being supported through a Recreational Trail Grant that was awarded for this project. We have been given permission to utilize ATVs to transport the materials into the woods from the parking lot, and most of the materials will already be on site (on the trail) by the time volunteers arrive to construct them on the 7th and the 14th. 

SEMASS NEMBA will provide basic tools, but if volunteers have impact screw guns with spare batteries, please feel free to bring them.

The second part of my project involves finish-grading the trail tread, including bench cutting into hillsides, refining the outslope of the trail tread, and removing sapling roots and duff layers (where needed). For this work, SEMASS NEMBA is providing tools for volunteers. (Rogue Hoes, Rock Bars, Shovels, Rakes, Loppers, etc).

Please refer to NEMBA Covid guidelines https://www.nemba.org/news/nemba-covid-19-guidance-rides-trail-care-events 

In addition, I ask that if you feel ill the day of or have any cold-like symptoms, or have been in the presence of someone with an active covid-19 infection in the last 14 days, please dont attend.

Any questions, please feel free to contact me at the email below.

Please Sign NEMBA's Annual Waiver ahead of time if you haven't already done so.

Thank You

Description

The Plymouth Town Forest is a 276 acre parcel laced with degraded town roads, which have become singletracks.

Many other singletracks run through the area. Not all of which are on the maps at the top of this page.

The forest's trails are fun, sandy in a few places and have a few challenging hills.

What really attracts one to these trails are the many miles of trails on conservation lands abuting the Town Forest.

These trails can get you into Myles Standish State Forest as well as other areas with no pavement.

Expand the Trailforks map to see some of these. But there are many more.

You'll enjoy riding and exploring here. Read more about [node:title]

We will be leaving from the Visitor Center main parking lot by the pump track @ 10-10:15am. The ride will be for about 1.5-2 hours depending. Routes and skill level will change weekly. I will post the skill level for each week on Facebook. Rides will vary from beginner, intermediate, to advanced. Make sure you only attend rides of your skill level and ride within your boundaries to ensure your own safety.

 

Please sign the NEMBA ride waiver for the current calendar year ahead of time! Click here to sign our Annual Waiver if you haven't already done so.  

   You don't have to be a member of NEMBA to join us, but everyone must sign the waiver.

The pace will be comfortable for everyone based on the designated skill level of the ride.

Wompatuck does offer a lot of very technical terrain but we will only ride those trails on intermediate and advanced level rides.
