Trailwork Party – February 6th

February 6 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

For this trailwork party we will be meeting at the restroom building at Trailhead Park at 8AM.

We had some more of that great weather this last week, well except for windy Saturday when high winds caused me to cancel work. The week out forecast is calling for more nice temperatures and some more of that wind. We will see how that works out.

Despite missing Saturday, the crews got a good start on widening the Sagebrush Trail, completing the first 400 feet in two days. We are using our newest gravel hauler to move the dirt down the trail where it is being used as part of the reworking that really bad corner.

This week we will continue with the widening project. The work will be with shovels and two of our haulers to cut about a foot out of the uphill bank and haul off the dirt. We will then touch up the trail and add some gravel.

It has been announced that we will be building a new trail heading off towards Little Badger this spring. However I will start the work off slow, not renting any expensive equipment just yet. That way if the winter decides to come back for a visit we can sit back and wait it out.

The trailmaster will provide all the tools and even some cookies at the 10:00 break. Volunteers will need to bring work gloves, water and snacks with a pack to carry them, and dress for the weather forecast. There isn’t any work for preteens and younger, it is just hard to keep them motivated for 4 hours.

Signups help our trailmaster with planning and making sure he bakes enough cookies. Sign-ups are also good in case of last minute changes to the schedule. Please let our trailmaster know that you are coming by sending an email to trailmaster@friendsofbadger.org
