In May 2016 new trail signs were made by the Moosalamoo Association with help from the GMNF. They were installed at the summit of Mt. Moosalamoo, on the Mt. Moosalamoo Trail near the campground, and at the Keewaydin/Oak Ridge Trail junction. During 2017 more signs will be installed at the Mt.Moosalamoo/Oak Ridge trail junction, and in the vicinity of FR92 and the Oak Ridge Trail farther north, as well as some other trail sign adjustments to make them easier to see.
For the first time since 2006 a new, fully updated map is now available that accurately show all trails and their uses, terrain and landmarks. This was a two year effort by the Moosalamoo Association, Middlebury College and the Addison Independent, and was printed in July 2017 by 802 Print LLC of Vergennes, VT.
Please visit the Map page and click “Download Map for Offline Viewing” to display the map as a pdf file, which can be saved for later viewing or printed. Or, if you would prefer to have the 13″ x 16″ printed version on glossy paper mailed to you, email your request to email@example.com
The USFS has installed a new trail sign on the Leceister Hollow Trail on the east side of the bridge over the LH Brook, which clears up confusion for those traveling north. The old trail used to go to the right, but was washed out in the 2008 flooding.
The USFS has installed 6 new wood duck boxes – at the Frost Trail, Chatfield Parking lot, behind Silver Towers Camp, behind Widow’s Clearing parking lot on Ripton/Goshen Rd, and north end of Dutton swamp. Checked and replaced nesting material at existing box on Frost Trail, found 4 eggs (abandoned), there was a bee’s nest inside box. Bee’s nest was cleaned out. Reset a box on FR 24b, on Voter’s Bk and checked another existing box there. There were now 9 total, either newly installed or checked.
