Wapack History Hike – June 1st

The Friends of the Wapack have been holding anniversary events to celebrated the 90th anniversary of The Wapack Trail.

One of these events was held June 1st  at Windblown Cross Country Ski Area. Owner and Operator Al Jenks told stories about Marion Davis and Frank Robbins, the couple that founded the trail in 1923.

We hiked along the newly relocated trail to Barrett Mountain on a very warm June day.

More details about the Friends of the Wapack and other anniversary events may be found on their website or by contacting Rick Blanchette – 603-878-1464.
