Thanks to all of the volunteers who came out for trail work this season. We have put in 895.5 volunteer hours planning, building and maintaining the City of Frederick Municipal Forest Trails (a.k.a. the Frederick Watershed). This doesn’t include hours spent hauling out almost 2 tons of trash from the roads.
Couldn’t make it out to help this season but still want to contribute? Contact us, there are other things we need help with that don’t involve digging in the dirt.
We have a lot more work planned for 2018, so stay tuned by joining our mailing list here.
The Frederick trail liaisons had a good meeting with City staff Monday with a lot of progress on 2017 and 2018 project planning. Unfortunately the Frederick team got word Tuesday that someone tore down the sign and broke the sign post closing the Super Sweet trail.
Please spread the word to all trail users: Trail closures need to be respected and removing signs is not going to bring them back, it only hurts the trail access work that has been going on. Use the following phone numbers if you see someone sabotaging the trail: Frederick County Sheriff’s Office (301-600-2071) and Natural Resources Police (800-628-9944). You can also report issues anonymously to the City of Frederick via firstname.lastname@example.org or through this site’s contact page.
Additional information about the trail closure can be found here:
FYI – Maryland Search and Rescue (MSAR) will be training in the Frederick Watershed this weekend, Sept. 22-24, 2017
