RXCSF is working to revise the current trail maps, create new maps for the groomed Nordic ski trails, and install new signs that clearly indicate trail names and difficulty. RXCSF believes this work will provide improved trail information and guidance for Nordic skiers that visit Harriet Hollister Spencer State Recreation Area (HHSSRA) and Mendon Ponds Park (MPP).
RXCSF will fund the map revisions and the cost to design and order the signs. The focus for this season will be HHSSRA with subsequent updated signage at Mendon Ponds Park.
The intention is for the proposed signage and updated maps is to provide:
- All groomed Trail names (where possible)
- Trail difficulty rating
- Trail distances
Current signage designs under consideration are 4×4 pressure treated posts or Carsontie Trail posts. Examples can be seen below. RXCSF will keep you posted on our progress in the weeks to come!
