The Hunters Creek Puncheon project on the Conservation Trail was amazing. The Foothills trail club raised $5,500 dollars for the project (including a donation from WNYMBA) and constructed 570 feet of Puncheons. This was a massive project which is a major improvement to to this trail system.
The puncheons are made from 1 inch thick treated lumber and were constructed off site and carried into the park. The pre-assembled puncheons were heavy and required 4 - 8 people to carry them in. Short ropes with loops on the ends were used to carry the puncheons to the trail side, a person on each side of the rope.
