We will be mostly lopping brush back and other easy projects to get the trails into tip-top shape!

The trails are downhill so plan for uphill on the way back. 2 miles max, probably less, with 100ft of elevation gain.

You should expect to participate in this work party for its entirety. For safety reasons, please do not arrive late or expect to be able to leave early.

  • Plenty of water
  • Snacks
  • lunch
  • Personal hygiene kit – must include a face mask/covering, hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes and work gloves (loaner gloves available if you do not have your own)
