About the event

We will be doing drainage work to reestablish and clean out existing drainages as we progress along the trail. This can be wet and muddy so rubber boot may be preferred. There may also be some trail widening and tread repair. We will be working as we progress along the trail, addressing drainages as we arrive at them. We will likely travel 2 – 3 miles in one direction, making the total distance 4 – 6 miles. Work will be strenuous at times and volunteers must come prepared with food and water for the day. We will not be returning to the trailhead for lunch.
