Hike Details:

The CTC members are roadside partners for a stretch of Route 366 from Pine Tree Road at Cornell to the far side of the town of Varna.

We provide safety vests and gloves (if not bringing your own). We also have “grabbers” to keep you from having to bend over.

We break into 4 teams of 2-3 volunteers to do a quarter each of the highway section,

This is light duty that is usually more social than work. Fun conversation. bragging rights for the silliest find and a sense of helping out. The two closest sections are right at the meeting place. The farther two in Varna usually require the use of a vehicle.

Registration is open!
