    Groton logging (Wharton plantation)

    I knew this was coming when I saw the trees getting marked this summer. I had hopes the trails would be salvageable after the "harvest". Unfortunately they used the trails as the entry point to mark the trees, which appears to mean they used the trails as the skidder paths. Secret Squirrel and Boombox are gone. Really sad since I enjoyed those two.

    Secret squirrel and boom box V2 coming this spring. NEFF is good about letting us rebuild the trails post harvest. Not sure if you ride TPL but a large portion of that got logged too. That's on the docket for spring too.

    Hi folks, I just saw the condition of these trails yesterday. It is a bummer that they are out of commission at the moment, this was part of one of my favorite loops. Who is organizing the rebuild of the trails, and do they need any volunteer help? Who should I contact to volunteer?

    Thanks
    Will

    It is a good thing they don't allow ebikes on those trails, they may get damaged.

    Groton Trail Committee are the people who'll be on point with this. Wachusett NEMBA and the locals will be the hands on deck. We'll probably start scouting the new route soon.
