Volunteers are needed to help restore degraded hiking trails on New Hampshire’s Mount Monadnock.

The Tenth Annual Monadnock Trails Week, hosted by the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests and New Hampshire State Parks, will be held July 17 to July 21. Volunteers – who can volunteer for one day of work or all five days – will join conservation professionals and trail maintainers in restoring the trails.

This year’s projects include constructing new stone stairs on the Pumpelly Trail, upgrading erosion control areas on the White Dot Trail, and adding footbridges and drainage on the Gilson Pond Loop and Birchtoft Trail.

Complimentary camping is available for volunteers at the Monadnock State Park campground.

For information or to volunteer, contact Carrie Deegan at or call 603-224-9945.
