In June, Great Pond Mountain Trust officials requested KidsPeace kids, as part of their regular Forestry program, to construct a wheelchair bypass around the South Gate on the Bucksport-Ellsworth Road.


The kids worked hard. Shawn McCue came along as a worker and test pilot. The pictures here illustrate Shawn’s contribution to the project. He judged the trail a little soft for traction, but good nonetheless. As the sign says, Do Not Block (Shawn’s) Gate.
