Trail Damage in Scarborough Marsh From Recent Storm

We had significant damage to the trail in Scarborough Marsh during the Christmas storm.  Unitil’s underground natural gas line is nearly exposed and there are obstacles to avoid and eroded spots on the trail in the marsh.

Unitil has marked the worst damage with cones and plans to do repairs as soon as possible.

The remainder of the trail needs caution but is not closed at this time.   Please be careful if using this section of the trail!

Here are some additional photos of the damage:

Bench Improvement on the trail near the Scarborough Marsh

Bench being improved near Scarborough MarshSpecial thanks to Boy Scout Ben Shields of Troop 47 in Scarborough for his work in updating five benches along the trail in the Scarborough Marsh area. Ben led the effort and worked alongside his father, Scout Master James Shields, Eastern Trail’s Patrick Conlon, and other scouts.

The work involved five benches on the trail in the Scarborough Marsh and just north of the marsh. Three of the benches received some new boards and a coat of water proofing wood treatment. The other two benches were in bad shape and were completely replaced with new ones hand made by Ben.

Great effort all – THANKS!
