Removing overgrown vegetation from the sides of the Trail is an essential maintenance best practice. It also serves the additional benefit of reducing hiker contact with tall grasses, host to a variety of small creatures, including ticks.
Join the Connecticut Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club
on Saturday, June 16, from 9 a.m to 3 p.m
and spend a day giving back to the Appalachian Trail.
The group will meet at the A.T. parking area on Route 4, which is north of its intersection with Cobble Road in Salisbury, Connecticut. Be sure to wear sturdy boots, long pants, and work gloves. Also, bring your own lunch, personal snacks, a rain jacket, insect repellent, and plenty of water.
