A dozen volunteers worked on the Wonalancet Out Door Club’s Cabin Trail on National Trails Day. Many hands make light work. adopters too. They care for their trail by cleaning water bars, removing brush and small blowdown trees, checking trail signs, painting blazes and even removing litter. Hikers are really fortunate that trails have adopters to care for them. Otherwise who would do it? The Appalachian Mountain Club, the Randolph Mountain Club, the Wonalancet Out Door Club and others utilize professional trail crews

They do a lot but it isn’t possible for the professional crews to do it all. The last two weekends I volunteered with the Chatham Trails Association (CTA) and the Wonalancet Out Door Club (WODC). I’m busy, I play hard but I try to volunteer See patenaude on 35
