One comment on “Why You Should Be A Volunteer Trail Maintainer

  1. I’ve been doing trailwork with the Green Mtn. Club the past several years. The GMC maintains the Long Trail as well as the rest of the AT in Vt. It assigns pieces of the trail to its sections. I’m in the Connecticut Section, which has the LT/AT from Glastenbury Tower to Kelly Stand Road. We also maintain the shelters in that stretch, Kid Gore and Story Spring. The section has a Vice President of Trail Maintenance who organizes two or three trail work weekends a year. Usually it’s just the usual brushing and blowdown removal, but last fall about a dozen of us, together with three GMC employees, put a new roof on Story Spring Shelter.
