Trailwork Party – April 4th

April 4 @ 8:00 am 12:00 pm

Update: The weather was great last week and the flowers are coming out.  We had some good crews and great progress.  We have completed rebuilding and graveling about 1600 feet of the trail starting at the Badger summit down the east Skyline Trail to about 25 feet shy of the 2.25 mile marker.  Still getting a lot of comments on how great the trail now looks.

This Week: The weather for this coming week looks good with highs around 60 with a chance of needed rain.  There will be work parties on Thursday through Sunday, 8 till noon.  We will be meeting at the Trails Building at Westgate Parking lot (the Skyline trailhead off of Dallas Road) and then drive up to near the work.

We will be working on the East Skyline Trail, continuing down as far as we have time.  The work will be to restore the trail by pulling the gravel back up on to it and removing rocks that have worked their way to the surface and making it 5 feet wide.  New gravel will also be added to complete the restoration.

The Trailmaster will provide all the tools and even some homemade cookies at the mid-morning break.  Volunteers need to bring work gloves, water, and snacks with a small pack to carry them, and dress for the weather forecast.  Remember if there is a little breeze at home there will be much more on the top where we are working.  There isn’t any work for preteens and younger – it is hard to keep them motivated for 4 hours.  You will need to sign-up so the trailmaster can plan the work and bake enough cookies.  Please let the trailmaster know that you are coming by sending an email to [email protected]
