The RPH Cabin Volunteers Club works on Saturdays (~9-4) to do local projects. Please see our website, http://rphcabin.org for details.

At this time, all trail restoration work is near the cabin site or within ten miles of it.
1. Replacing several rotted out sections of wooden broad walk near RPH Cabin area, built by the club from 2000 - 2008.
2. Painting the new monster bridge on top of Stormville Mountain, which was built by the club in July 2013.
3. Repairing and painting of the eve siding (T 1-11 plywood ) on the cabins south side.
4. Removing seasonal mold growth on the external walls of the shelter
5. Painting the shelter ceiling after re-taping the sheet rock joints.
6. Stormville Mountain Stone Step Erosion Situation !
Last year during our July work weekend the club built the Monster bridge at that location. In conjunction with that project we also constructed two retaining walls--one being fourteen foot long, four foot high by four foot deep. The other one a 20 foot long side hill wall to combat excessive water erosion from snow plowing and road drainage issues.
This years project we will build 40 feet of new stone steps plus a new retaining wall to go with it.

If you have any questions, please contact me here on white blaze, or through our club website.

Thank you,
