Temple Mt. State Reservation
The NH Department of Recreation and Economic Development (DRED) is working
on plans to promote NH Trails Day state wide. We are still in the planning
stages, but we hope to participate in NH Trails Day with a work day to
install bog bridges and signs on the Beebe Trail at Temple Mountain State
Reservation. Check our web site wapack.org for more information as it
develops. See you on the trail!
Saturday September 26, 2015— Raymond Trail
The third workday will be on September 26 and will involve the construction
of a bog bridge over a small stream on the Raymond Trail. A number of years
ago we installed a log bridge of the the stream, but this has deteriorated
and we will be installing a more permanent bridge. The Raymond Trail has
limited parking, so we will park at the Cranberry Meadow Pond Trail located
approximately a quarter mile north on East Mountain Road in Peterborough. We
will be carrying in wood for the bridge, so make sure you wear gloves and
have a pack that you don't mind carrying wood in.

Road in Sharon. We haven't visited this section on a workday in quite a few
years and will be doing general trail maintenance including drainage work,
brush trimming, and blazing. Meet at the NewWest Mall on Turnpike Road in
New Ipswich from which we will car pool over to the trailhead where there is
These workdays are a good opportunity to contribute in
direct way to the maintenance of the trail, learn some trail maintenance
techniques, and have a good time. Hope to see you there.
