Trailwork Party – February 22nd

February 22 @ 12:30 pm 4:30 pm

The weather forecast predicts temperatures in the low 30’s in the mornings so we will be working 12:30 to 4:30 in the afternoons when it is warmer.  We will be meeting by the restroom building in Trailhead Park at 12:30.

We will start out with some easy work, raking the gravel back on to the Canyon Trail.  Last spring we spent a lot of time getting the middle section of that trail fixed up.  Over time the gravel is worked to the edge of the trail and the trailmaster would like to get it spread back across the trail.  The gravel protects the trail and we don’t want to rework that section anytime soon.  The ground is nice and moist, it is a good time to be doing this.  We will be using rakes and McLeods.  We will be continually moving along the trail so please bring a pack to carry your water and extra cloths.

The trailmaster will provide all the tools and even some homemade cookies at the mid-day break.  Volunteers need to bring work gloves, water, and snacks with a small pack to carry them, and dress for the weather forecast.  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]

If you can’t make it this week, there will work parties every Thursday through Sunday into April to get some general trail maintenance along the trail system.
