In the past few years some of the trails have been seriously eroded. We asked the Maine Conservation Corps (MCC) for their recommendations to repair and restore the trails. Their suggestions are more ambitious than we would want or be able to afford, but they provided a basis for a broad discussion of how we want to steward our trails.
The Lobster Cove Trail reconstruction project, funded by the Monhegan Associates and a grant from the Recreational Trails Program, was completed in 2010 by a crew from the Maine Conservation Corps and volunteers on the island.
Since then on-island workers have been trained to carry out trail restoration throughout the trail network. This work is currently underway.
