Vermont's Gateway To Backcountry Skiing And Riding

Summer Trail Work

IMG_0558

If you enjoy working in the woods and have some time to spare, please join the CTA and other volunteers in our summer effort to tackle trail improvement projects. Summer trail work days are announced in late Spring each year. You’ll need lunch, water, long pants, work gloves, hiking boots, protection from sun/bugs, and a pair of loppers or a handsaw. 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.
