Lake Whitehall Trail

Monthly Workday

In partnership with Hopkinton's Trail Coordination & Management Committee, the Trails Club runs a trail maintenance workday on the first Saturday of each month. The work will vary depending upon the needs at each site: trail clearing, cleaning out drainage ditches, removing invasive plants, and more. Participants will need gloves and sturdy footwear, and tools appropriate for the work to be done.

This is a great opportunity to give back to the trails you love. Each workday lasts just a few hours, and you'll be with a fun group of people. By the way, if you're a student or Scout in need of community service hours, this qualifies!

Curious about the projects being considered? The TCMC maintains a spreadsheet with the info. If you have a suggestion for a trail that needs work, or know of a specific issue to be addressed, send us an email.

Next workday

Date: Saturday, March 2
Time: 9AM-noon
Location: Pratt Farm/Fruit Street
Meeting/parking location: Pratt Farm parking area (next to the pond, 110 Fruit Street). See notes below.
Work to be done: Move bridge/boardwalk materials to the work site (and maybe build some bridges/boardwalks)
Tools: Gloves, strong backs

We need to move lumber from the parking area back to worksites along the Whitehall Brook trail. If time and conditions allow, we'll start building some bridges & boardwalks. If the parking area is too muddy, we'll park/meet at the short access road opposite 57 Fruit St.
