“Our main project was converting the 225-foot Cross Campus Trail to be handicap accessible. We made it as level as possible, and widened it to a minimum of 4 feet.
From there we worked to reduce the mud and pools of water on the trail. We put down a layer of broken ledge rock up to 1.5 feet thick in some places. In one area with a lot of water we built a 7-foot long culvert. We laid down carriage road dirt over the broken ledge to create a hard-packed, smooth surface. Each person on the 10-person crew devoted 53 hours, or 530 hours total.
We also put in 420 hours on Mount Desert Island and Isle au Haut constructing bog walks over the soggiest sections of trail. After that we put in 130 total team hours clearing brush on Cliff Trail, Western Head Trail and a section of Duck Harbor Trail.”
