Age: Families welcome! Kids 13 and under must have a parent or guardian present.

Activities: General trail maintenance, tread construction, re-route sections.

We will be working behind Tiny Dancer (the trail dozer) cleaning up the tread.  There are several sections of trail that need a larger bench cut, and several muddy sections that require a re-route.  We will also be clearing brush and overgrowth opening the trail corridor and creating better sight lines for trail users.

At the end of the work day, stay and relax with a BBQ, with local microbrew provided by APT6.
