Perfect Post Hole about to install posts at Braemar north entrance to the trail.
This is very near the foundation of the old train station as twice the auger had to be repositioned after hitting cement.
Yesterday, May 24th, Perfect Post Hole of Innerkip arrived in Hickson to install the first set of poles for the major signs on the Hickson Trail.
Each of our two bridges now have a sign that names their sponsors. See the close up for better view of the details. Thank you Sponsors!
Employing a rented gas driven fence post pounder. Easier on the shoulders.
Now Spring is here (or supposed to be) we have hired Bower Hill Services Inc. of Woodstock to trim and brush the older sections of the Hickson Trail between County Road 17 and Braemar Road – approximately 6.5 km in length. You can see what a difference it is making. Photo courtesy of Kristoff Küche. We should be able to keep this open by cutting the trail with a heavy duty lawn mower throughout the growing season.
The rye grass planted last fall by our Committee Chairperson has sprouted at least along the side of the trail.
