Vermont's Gateway To Backcountry Skiing And Riding

Fall Trail Work

Trail Work Section 22

If you enjoy working in the woods and have some time to spare, please join CTA’s Trail Chiefs and other volunteers in our annual effort to clear the Catamount Trail and our backcountry zones of blow-downs, branches, and brush.  Fall trail work days are announced and posted in late summer.  Contact the appropriate Trail Chief for details on meeting time and place.  As additional work days are scheduled, they will be added to our online calendar. You’ll need lunch, water, long pants, work gloves, hiking boots, and a pair of loppers or a handsaw. Pack or wear blaze orange as many of these dates occur during hunting season. Bring a friend, give back to the trails you enjoy, and help CTA provide trail users with great experiences this winter. 

Always contact the Trip Leader in advance to confirm meeting times and locations, as they are subject to change.


This listing includes work days for the Catamount Trail and for the backcountry zones being created and maintained by CTA’s chapters.   Additional 2017 work dates will be posted as they are scheduled.
