Long Distance Trails Crew Completes Stone Arch Bridge
The repaired stone arch bridge over Seely Brook greatly improves safety and trail experiences in Goosepond Mountain State Park.
Starting last January, the Long Distance Trails Crew took on the task of repairing the severely damaged stone arch bridge over Seely Brook in Goosepond Mountain State Park. Over 30 work days, 43 volunteers gave a total of 2,493 hours to rehabilitate this stream crossing. They built 145 square feet of crib wall, installed 350 pounds of rebar, and mixed and poured 580 bags of concrete—that’s over 25 tons! The finished crossing, celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Nov. 4, is 18 feet wide and 37 feet long.
