"I understand not everyone supports it," he said.
"The more we can do for this North Country, we should do it," said Burnham "Bing" Judd, chairman of the Connecticut Lake Headwaters Citizens Committee. His committee has actively supported the Ride the Wilds project.
Asked Friday about the total cost of the project, Gamache said that would be hard to calculate because the funding came from so many sources and at different times, and was targeted to develop particular sections of the trail.
For example, a Trails Bureau grant of more than $60,000 went last year to the Metallak All-Terrain Vehicle Club in Colebrook to build trails in the Great North Woods that connected Gorham, Pittsburg and Colebrook.
"A lot of the trail goes through existing logging roads," he said, which reduced the need of the labor that's required for cutting new trails.
