Friends of Pisgah will hold a trail maintenance day on Saturday, February 9th starting at the Beals Loop/Beals Road trailhead parking area at 10 a.m. We will brush out blowdowns and forest debris in the area that day.

Bring a branch lopper and/or a sharp hand saw. Be sure to have good gloves, warm clothing, boots and even a pair of micro-spikes or crampons in case of icy conditions. Bring a snack or a lunch and plenty of fluid.

In order to reach Pisgah's most remote trailhead take Route 9 to a point just east of the Big Deal general store. Turn right if eastbound (a little after the store) or left if westbound (before reaching the store) onto the Old Chesterfield Road and then turn an immediate left onto Tuttle Road. Travel a quarter mile on Tuttle Road to the Old Swanzey Road and turn right and travel south to a fork in the road. Stay right at the fork staying on the Old Swanzey Road. The road will soon turn to dirt. Travel a long mile to Stone Mills Road on the right. Travel uphill gradually about two-fifths of a mile to a parking pullout on the right just before reaching a bog pond ahead and on the right. Park off the traveled road, please. Pisgah signage marks the trailhead.
