Adopt a section of the Killington Section of the Long Trail
Sector Checkers periodically
Visit their section of trail.
Perform any needed maintenance tasks that they feel comfortable doing.
Report to the Killington Section trails chairman on the condition of their trails and on the need for any major tasks for which more help is needed.
Tools and guidance by experienced trail workers will be provided as needed.
Typical maintenance tasks include:
Pruning trailside foliage, trimming grass and brush, removing small blowdowns from the trail
Repairing or replacing directional signs
Hoeing out water bars
Occasionally a large blowdown must be removed or a wet spot on the trail must be bridged or bypassed.
The trail sectors are listed below. If you’re interested in becoming a Sector Checker for the Killington Section, or have questions about it, get in touch with Herbert Ogden. He is also listed in the About Us section.
