Fingerlakes Trail Maintenance Log.

#TrailsRoc is sponsoring a section of the Letchworth branch of the Fingerlakes trail this year.  (Sections between access D and E)  This page will be used to chronicle our efforts and track person-hours spent maintaining this jewel of the region.

2020 cumulative person hours 100

March 8, 2020. 0.5 hours.  I (TB) was trail running through the area and did some recon for future improvements.  It was a great day for it, the ground was still partially frozen but you could see where the muddy spots would be.  No tools today, but I cleared up a creek crossing, dropping the water level from two feet to a few inches.  Also scouted a trail reroute around the permanently muddy section north of the power lines and a fix to the field area under the power lines.
