Trail News and Updates

Pine Valley:

  • A Trail Maintenance Day is planned for Saturday, June 7, 2014 starting from the Pine Valley parking area in Woodford, VT, the southern portion of our trail head. Volunteers are needed to help access the trail, clear clogged culverts and check on beaver activity that may need to be addressed. Equipment needed will be hoes for the culverts and loppers to trim small branches. We will meet at 9 a.m. and start in as a group. Bring a lunch, bug spray and wear your boots! Everybody is welcome. For more information email Willene, Lorraine or Kelley.
  • August 2013: The beavers have been busy! We do not encourage you to enter the forest from the Pine Valley entrance. Some flooded areas are entirely too deep to be safely navigated by horse and rider. We do suggest using the entrance from Little Pond (just south of Pine Valley) and the Somerset Parking lot if you choose to ride in the southern part of the GMNF.
