Volunteer Trail Day I – LOCATION CHANGE to Sheep Bridge Trail

June 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

Join us Saturday, June 9th at 9am for a day of trail work and give back to those public lands you enjoy so much.  We will be working on The Sheep Bridge Trail.   The goal for the day will be to tear out the old bog bridge that is connected to the far (south) end of the creek bridge.  The bog bridge is in rather poor condition and is going to be replaced by the USFS the following week. This means the Sheep Bridge Trail will be closed from June 9th – 22nd for bridge repair.

Depending on volunteer turnout, we will also plan to work on the trail tread in a few problem areas, and also continue with a reroute section that was started last year.

The work day will go from 9AM – 4PM, then after-work BBQ/dinner 4:30PM – 6PM.  It’s okay if you can’t make it the whole day, any amount of your help is appreciated (but you may miss out on a raffle opportunity)

Meeting Location/Time: Meeting spot will be at the Sheep Bridge/Mill Creek Trailhead. For directions, see below.  Be ready at 9AM to sign in and listen to a quick group talk before we hit the trail.  Please carpool if you can.  GOOGLE MAP
