Jarrett’s Ode to the Trail Builders

35th Anniversary of the Great Mountain Trail

 

Carrying on like we did before

We had lots of fun

The great mountain trail was created

Hey, I have a great idea, a celebration of you

 

Carrying on like we did before

Reminiscing those trail building days

Choosing the routes, placing rocks, and refining the walking surface

Caring for this place, a celebration of you

 

Carrying on like we did before

We raised concerns, the Rangers couldn’t keep up

When so many were indifferent, we lead by example

Still handling the obvious, a celebration of you

 

Carrying on like we did before

Feeling the wind and hearing the birds

Experiencing the same forest in a future time

Honouring the contingency plan, a celebration of you

 

Carrying on like we did before

My old friends, still placing stones and carrying soils

Recording the maintenance accomplishments

Didn’t we have us some fun, a celebration of you
