We need to clear brush and trim back branches in preparation of applying stone dust to the trail. Bring loppers, cutters, chain saw, pole saw, gloves, bug spray.
Meet at Joppa Rd near the Dalton Covered Bridge in Warner. Park along the west (wooded) side of the road. Please do not park on the east side of the road adjacent to the field as this is private property and provides the fire department access to the river. Wear long pants/boots as there is some poison ivy present on this section.

We successfully added stone dust trail surface to the bridge at Bagley. This short extension to the trail provided us with an opportunity to try a smoother surface material. Early reports are very favorable.
Time to put a new surface on this bridge.
With thanks to our many donors for their contributions, thanks to the Warner Selectboard for their permission to re-deck the bridge, thanks to our bridge design team and to Cyr Lumber & CWS Fence and Guardrail we are ready to get to work.
Volunteers who want to help build a new wood deck with railings on the truss bridge over the Warner River at Bagley Field in Warner please get in touch with us. BYO tools. I have one generator, could use at least one more. We will be drilling to accommodate 3/4″ diameter Timber Bolts. Some through 15″ of material – so long bits are handy. An additional chop saw and stand could be handy. Lots of wood to toted from place to place. Help for an hour or help all day. Heavy item drop off by Brayside Apartments. Parking at Bagley Field.
