Timber Harvest impact to Wapack Trail at Windblown

There is an active timber harvest operation along the Wapack Trail this winter on the former Windblown Ski Area property in New Ipswich. While the trail has not been closed, the directional signs and yellow blazes have been removed from the trees. The trail path could also be unclear and hazardous where logs are skidded on and across the trail. We suggest that if you are not already familiar with this trail section you should avoid this section until Spring. If you go, please stay clear of logging equipment and avoid using any of the old ski trails.
