Gromit the Trail Dog supervises young volunteers from a Health Careers class working on the River Trail at Maasto Hiihto Trails in October. "They had to clean out a trench on the side of the trail that keeps the water off it each winter," Gromit notes on her blog.* (Photo © and courtesy Trail Mutt Reports)
HANCOCK -- Keweenaw Nordic Ski Club (KNSC) invites volunteers to go back into Maasto Hiihto's Swedetown gorge to finish up ditch clearing TOMORROW, Saturday morning, Nov. 10. Meet at KNSC storage shed at 9 a.m. The shed is located near Hancock’s DPW (Department of Public Works) at the Tomasi trail head. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to let Arlyn and Sandy Aronson know if you’re attending so they'll have treats and tools for you.
This will be on Sidewinder Hill this time and feel free to come later if you can’t do 9 a.m. Wear hiking or work boots, work gloves and clothing appropriate for working in dirt.
