|Moosehead Trails (MT) wrapped up their public work events for 2016 on one of the region’s major landmarks: Big Moose Mountain on Friday, September 9th.
Volunteers collaborated with staff from the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry’s Bureau of Parks and Lands to clean drains, remove blow-downs, and clip back branches from the trail corridor. The group also opened up a new scenic vista. The vista is located above the former fire warden’s cabin and offers a spectacular view west to Bigelow Mountain.
Although MT has completed its schedule of events for the season, the group will continue to meet throughout the winter and plan for 2017. Anyone interested in getting involved in trail stewardship in the Moosehead Lake region is welcome to join.
