14th Annual $5.00 Fund Drive to Support the Cohos Trail

THE 14th ANNUAL $5.00 FUND DRIVE

GATHER ‘ROUND THE CAMPFIRE. I’LL TELL YOU A STORY

In year 2000, we lost a soul on the Cohos Trail. One of the very first trekkers on the infant Cohos Trail followed a moose trail into the puckerbrush and was discovered a day later while wandering around in the backcountry of the Phillips Brook watershed, way off course.

Now, since then, moose trails aren’t so readily confused for the treadway of the Cohos Trail.

That’s because hundreds of people have volunteered to improve the trail over the last 14 years, and many have given what they can in hard-earned dollars to this all-volunteer association so we can do big things in the one-million-acre Great North Woods of New Hampshire.

WILL YOU SUPPORT OUR EFFORTS…

by gifting our little association with $5.00, $10, $25, $50, $100, $1,000, or a cool $1 million (we always throw that $1 million in there)? And if so, what would you receive in return for your generosity?

In 2015, we will undertake perhaps the most extensive effort on the Cohos Trail in its history. The work we will do, with your help, includes: 1. Relocating over five miles of trail; 2. Building five miles of all new trail; 3. Constructing the new Devil’s Rest Shelter near Bald Mt. Notch; 4. Installing 400 feet of new bog bridging; 5. Helping erect a donated shelter at the Museum of the White Mountains (that we will move to a Cohos Trail site in 2016); 6. Putting up more kiosks with startling graphics on the trail; 7. Creating an all new map set and an all new Cohos Trail website.
