Trailwork Party on National Public Lands Day

September 23 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Trail work starts for the fall season

When: Sunday, September 23rd, 8:30 to 12:30
Where: We will be working on the Sagebrush Trail near Trailhead Park

The Friends of Badger Mountain will be teaming with REI for this upcoming National Public Lands Day, well actually the day after, Sunday, September 23rd.  We will be working to finish the new edition to the Sagebrush Trail which was extended down to Trailhead Park earlier this spring to give an alternate route around the steps.  Part of the work could not be completed because of delivery problems for some rocks. We now have the rocks so let’s get them in place!

Why the rocks? The soil on the north side of Badger Mountain is made of very fine particles, mostly wind deposits. That’s right, it is dust and is very weak if you were to walk along the edge. We need to support this downhill edge of the trail or it will sluff off narrowing the trail. You need to bring work gloves, water and snacks, and dress for the weather forecast. Also knee pads may be helpful.  All tools will be provided.  There will be no work for preteens and younger.

Please sign-up by sending me an email at trailmaster@friendsofbadger.org. Signing up helps with planning the work and having enough tools available.
