Scotchman Peak Trail #65 rebuild continues

Posted on Tuesday, June 14th, 2016 by »

FSPW is planning to finish a one-mile trail construction project replacing the beginning stretch of Trail #65 with a much more user-friendly section of tread. The new track will be much easier on the heart going up and on the knees coming down. And, it’s prettier, to boot.

FSPW trail crews finished the first half mile last summer and decommissioned the fall-line section of the old approach. The plan is to finish the new tread this year by the end of September.

There are five workdays on Trail #65 this summer including a two-day event on September 23 and 24 to celebrate National Public Lands Day. The plan is to finish and dedicate the new portion of trail that weekend. The next single work day is July 8.

For more information on the trail days, including dates, check out the event schedule here.
