Trail Update: The plan for our Nov 12, 2022 work party

So far we have 30 people signed up for our Nov 12 work party. It’s going to be another great turnout!

Here’s what we’ll be working on:

  1. Loading and delivering rock: As usual, JT will be working the loader at the rock piles filling power carriers. There will be 3 power carriers delivering rock to the trail site. We’ve got a few people trained as drivers, but we are always looking to share this skill – let us know if you want to learn how to drive a power carrier!
  2. Culverts and rock at the trail site: We are continuing the work of building up the portion of trail that gets flooded by the creek. Craig and Adam will lead teams of 2-3 people.
  3. Extending the trail: Art and 3-4 team leaders will guide the work of clearing more trail – trimming branches, cutting brush, digging ferns, raking tread. We need lots of people for this. This is lighter work than rock; great for families!

We are expecting mostly sunny weather and light winds with temps in the mid-40’s. Dress in layers, bring gloves, lunch, and water. We look forward to seeing you!
