About the Event
Volunteers will help rehabilitate a stretch of the Iditarod National Historic Trail through Turnagain Pass. Expect work to be a combination of removing brush from the trail corridor, chopping roots and removing rocks from the trail tread, and cleaning/fixing trail tread and drainage as needed.

Noon, lunch break.
1:30, hike back to trailhead and debrief.
DIRECTIONS/ADDRESS/NAME OF TRAILHEAD:
Meet at the Center Ridge parking lot at the top of Turnagain Pass (on the west or “non-motorized” side of the highway).
To get there, travel to MP 68.5 of the Seward Highway. Look for the large parking area on the east side of the highway, with visible toilet facilities. This lot will be on the left-hand side for southbound travelers, and on the right for northbound travelers. Note there’s another large parking area on the opposite side of the highway – that’s not the one!).
What to bring: Rain gear, sturdy work/hiking boots, snacks, water, sunscreen, long work pants, and work gloves and safety glasses if you have them (if you don't have gloves/safety glasses they will be provided for the day).
What NOT to bring: Alcohol, drugs, pets and firearms.
Notes: Volunteers must be 18 or older. Access to job site will require a less than 1-mile hike, with some minor hills and rocky terrain. Must be physically fit enough to hike at a swift pace carrying tools. Expect jobs such as digging, chopping, and removing brush from the trail corridor.
