Volunteer Trail Day #2-Packsaddle RESCHEDULED

Packsaddle Lake Trail

The trail on the north side of the lake is being rerouted for sustainability and to reduce the grade. Join us for a fun Friday with the promise of a swim at the end!

Date: Friday, September 17

Time: 9am-3pm. Partial day volunteers are welcome!

Activities: Clean up of new trail established by Forest Service trail dozer, reclamation of old trail. The dirt is very soft and easy to work with right now, so progress will happen fast. Meet: We will meet at the northeast end of the project near the FS road junction at 9am (see image). Red line: New Route (0.6 mi.), Purple line: Old Route, Purple/Black: Abandoned Route
