We will meet at the camp area prior to starting our work day at 8:30. Campers can come and set up Friday and break camp before or following the workday Sunday. Meals will not be provided however you never know if someone might show up with a Dutch oven full of chili. Potable water will be provided. No electricity, port-a-potty available.
Trail maintenance work actives for the work teams will include mowing, lopping, chainsawing, hedging and blazing. Tools and personal protection gear will be available.
This will be a great weekend for camping and will be a fun event that will greatly improve our hiking experience in a unique area of our state.
