CNHSC is proud to announce that a major section (1.6 miles) of the Three Ponds Re-route Project has been completed and is now open for use. The completed segment links our trail system from the Buzzell Extension to Warren, connecting Primary Trail 153 to Primary Trail 155. Work began shortly after final approval which was issued on November 20, 2013. It took a dedicated group of individuals 3 months to cut and clear trees, build numerous bridges and box culverts, and perform excavation work in this remote location under some pretty extreme weather conditions.
We would like to thank the many volunteers for taking time out of their busy schedules and braving the elements to make this happen! Also, a huge thanks to Dirt Design for the excavation work and dedication to ever-improving the CNHSC trail system.

Have a great weekend everyone, ride safe!
Wow, there is lots of going on this weekend, get out there and have some fun!
The Lancaster Grand Prix, Lancaster NH - celebrating the 50th anniversary of “The Kilkenny Cup,” the oldest snowmobile race in the United States. It’s also reciprocal weekend with VT & Maine. I’ve also included a link about the recent warning about ice, or lack thereof, on the lakes.
CNHSC wants everyone to be aware that the corners are icy, and coverage is thin, please slow down and be safe.

Great News, overnight we received 8-10 inches of heavy wet snow! There were some power outages and trees down so if you venture out on the trails early please be careful, the groomers have not been out there yet. The groomer operators would greatly appreciate any help moving trees, branches, etc from the trail as they won’t have so much “stop and go” during their trip. They groom very late into the night and conditions such as this only makes their trips that much longer. Stay tuned – We will be posting a more detailed update later today to the website.
Our Fall trail work crews were great! We had many hard working volunteers for our Saturday work parties on the 3 Ponds Re-route and Dirt Designs was out there working mid-week too. Despite the fact that the area is quite remote a lot of great work was completed. This is no easy task, building trails is a huge undertaking with planning, manpower, and machine time all being important pieces of the project. The crews hiked miles, while dressed in chaps, and carrying chainsaws to cut and move lots and lots of trees!!
We just can’t say Thank You enough to all the CNHSC volunteers, and to Chesley’s Pizza & our wonderful “club cooks” for some yummy lunches and goodies!
