Blocked Trails Cleared at Danforth Brook
September 11, 2020
On Wednesday September 9 a team of Steve Rothman, Larry Kunz, Betsy Taylor-Kennedy and Gordon Taylor got together for a socially distanced and masked effort to clear trails at the Danforth Brook area where recent storms had brought down several trees and blocked paths. They also started an exercise to identify the true summit of Barretts Hill so that it can be marked with a sign and possibly trail markings from the current paths that lead from the gas pipeline to the summit plateau.
Everybody was impressed by the splendid “wolf tree” that was obviously an historic boundary marker from many years ago.
Here are some before and after pictures:
The team spent several minutes looking at the summit plateau and using GPS to locate the true summit at 460′. Another visit will be needed with several GPS devices to identify the best place to install the marker.
