Lake Whitehall Trail

Monthly Workday

In partnership with Hopkinton's Trail Coordination & Management Committee, the Trails Club is running 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. Usually rakes and hand clippers, and sometimes loppers and hand saws.

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!

One more thing: 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, February 5
Time: 9AM-noon
Location: Whitehall Conservation Area, meet at parking area opposite 276 Wood Street (see parking note below)
Work to be done: Invasives removal
Tools: Hand clippers, loppers, small hand saws

We'll be working in an open area adjacent to Piazza Lane. If the parking area is full, or snowed in, park at the Whitehall boat ramp and follow Piazza to the work site.
