With your help, the Gulliver's Cove Trails Association is hoping to open up a trail extension from the upper look off, the rest of the way down to Gulliver's Head.
On Wednesday, Oct. 9, the trail association is looking for help from volunteers to clean up the new stretch of trail - the volunteer day will serve the double purpose of getting the trail open and introducing Digby's outdoor community to the new stretch of trail and its stunning scenery.
A few association volunteers will be roughing out the trail with chainsaws and brushsaws a few days in advance - and we are hoping volunteers can use handtools to clean up any rough cuts or missed stumps and to help pile the brush from the first pass through.
The association has planned an extension of about 300 or 400m but, depending how ambitious everyone is, we could make it a loop of about 600m.
If you have brush loppers rakes or other handtools please consider bringing them along but please no power tools.
The work is planned to take just two or three hours. The association will host a BBQ at 1 p.m. to thank the volunteers.
Consider letting us know if you plan to help out and if you have questions or need more information, please contact the Municipal Trail Coordinator Jonathan Riley at 902-245-2861.
