The town of Moriah and Champlain Area Trails are seeking volunteers to make a new hiking trail at Cheney Mountain Saturday, Oct. 8, 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“The trail up Cheney Mountain will be a great new resource for residents and visitors in Moriah,” according to Chris Maron of Champlain Area Trails. “The new trail starts by the town’s former landfill on Pelfershire Road and follows an old logging road to the summit where there are spectacular views. There has been talk of making a trail on this town-owned property for years and now the partnership of CATS and Moriah is making this happen.”
Volunteers should bring gloves, loppers and hand saws to cut tree limbs and saplings, remove fallen logs and clear brush.
People should meet on Pelfershire Road, which is about halfway between Port Henry and Westport. From its intersection with Rt. 22/9N, go west about 1.4 miles to a road pullout. For more details, call 962-2287 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
