TM Report: Trout Brook

Date: 8/6/2011
Report Type: TM Report:
Trail Name: Trout Brook
Town: Weston
Trail Conditions: Dry
Observations/Information: IMBA sponsored a 4 day event with FC NEMBA, and included a Trail School day which was 3 hours in classroom and an afternoon of trail work at Troutbrook. We had a total of 24 volunteers (4 IMBA teachers, 6 CTNEMBA TA's and 14 Other Volunteers) We built a raised switchback on a steep hillside that include construction of a 3 foot retaining wall. We brought over about twelve 600+ lb boulders for the wall and 3 yards are soil. Absolute success would be an understatement, the bond with Troutbrook and FCNEMBA was strengthened by this show cased project. A huge thanks goes out to IMBA for this successful 4 day event.

Pretty impressive rocks that you moved with the 4 man lifting sling - nice job.
