Wednesday Weekly Maintenance - 8:30 AM Wed Oct 11

This week we will move to our “northern section” at Gifford Rd, at 8:30 AM Wednesday October 11th. This 1.9 mile section usually takes two weeks to complete. To get there: take SR 88 north from the town of Phelps and travel about 1 mile crossing the NYS Thruway. Turn right (east) on Rockefeller Rd. After a short distance, turn left (north) on Wilber Rd. After a short distance, turn right on Gifford Rd. The trail head is about 100 yards farther.

We typically run five gas powered machines: one telescoping pole saw and four sickle bars. Usually, experienced workers run the power equipment. Others trim with loppers and use pitch forks to toss the trimmed brush off the trail.

After completing a morning’s work, the crew gathers for coffee and camaraderie at a nearby restaurant. If you’re interested in working with a great group of folks keeping the trail in tip-top condition, contact Doug: dougdan@rochester.rr.com
