Trailwork Party – March 31st

March 31 @ 8:00 am 12:00 pm

Update: We lost Thursday to high winds, Friday was a good day and we laid down about 500 feet of fresh gravel, Saturday was cut short by much needed rain and today the trailmaster had only one helper. So progress its slow but we are getting a lot of rocks removed from the Skyline Trail. We had many people tell us how well the trail looked as they passed.

This Week: The weather for this coming week looks good with highs in the 60’s. There will be work parties on Thursday through Sunday, 8 till noon. Yes, even on Easter if people want to work that day. We will be meeting at the Trails Building at Westgate Parking lot (the Skyline trailhead off of Dallas Road) and then drive up to the summit.
We will be working on the East Skyline Trail, working from the top down. 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. 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]

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