Just about finished with the blue loop trail at Tekoa Park! Cleared two vistas, newest is of Mount Tekoa across the Westfield River. Homer’s Lookout still holds the steel anchors for the lookout tower that was once here. Had some help from our friends at the New England Trail to repair some banking left here long ago when this was a mountain bike trail. New spikes put in logs secure the edge of the trail on the initial climb. Pitch pine and rare Oak varieties cover this peak. We also cleared some dead wood at the big vista. Thank you to all our volunteers who have helped us bring this trail back to life! Mapping and blazing will be the next step.
