About The Event

About: After a long winter, Fogg Island’s trail needs some maintenance to get it ready for the summer season! Join 7 Lakes Alliance for a day of clearing corridor and tread on the beautiful Fogg Island Preserve.

Tasks: (This is a long trail, and the first two tasks alone will take most of the day)

  • Pruning back the trees that have grown up along trail
  • Clearing the tread of the trail where necessary, and raking drainages to promote water flow off the trail
  • Picking up trash and debris along the access road and trail

What to bring:

  • Work gloves, sturdy work shoes
  • Water
  • Lunch/snacks
  • Bug spray
  • Sunscreen and appropriate clothing to be out in the sun!

Tools you could bring (7 Lakes will provide tools as well)

  • Loppers
  • Pruning saw
  • Hatchet or small axe
  • Rake or hoe

Driving Directions to Trailhead: From Cottle Hill Road in Mt. Vernon, turn onto Spring Hill Road. You will pass the “Fogg Island Preserve” sign on your left. Take the next left. This road appears to be a driveway to a small farm, but you are going the right way. You may pass a sign on your right that says, “Farm Animals, Private Property”. Stay left and keep going past the house. At the end of the road, you will find a gravel parking area! The trail is located behind the metal gate. Call (207)495-6039 if you are lost.

Please contact with any questions.
