A team with the National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC), an AmeriCorps program, is working with the Frost Valley YMCA to help maintain their current trail systems. For the next seven weeks, eight NCCC members will be working to improve the hiking experience for guests at their retreat center.
The team, Moose Four, will help improve Frost Valley’s most heavily used trails, which have experienced erosion and damage as a result of Hurricane Irene and three major floods. Specifically, they will be maintaining the tread system and installing proper drainage to create more sustainable trails. During its seven-week term with the Frost Valley YMCA, the team aims to improve over two miles of trails, remove invasive species, install water bars for proper drainage and repair two bridges.
