Norwich Trails schedules work days Spring through Fall, each having a focus which can be general trail maintenance (clearing brush, refreshing waterbars) or a specific short-term project (building a small bridge, or placing stones). Everyone can help, no particular skills required, all ages welcomed!
Have a favorite trail which you use regularly? Help keep the trail maintained by reporting conditions requiring attention (missing sign, recent blowdown) or suggesting improvements (drainage, treadway hardening). To report a trail issue, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
