Clinton River Park Trail (CRPT) Trail Day:19-Nov-2011 @ 10am

Postby Mack » November 8th, 2011, 8:50 am

Want to be involved with building a new feature at Clinton River Park Trail? We are going to be constructing a
50' bridge to span the low/wet area coming into the "Humps". The bridge is a much needed addition to this
low area of the trail. It will also helps us in making the trail rideable year around. We need volunteers to help
get this bridge built!

Please join us at 10am on Saturday, November 19th, 2011 at the trail head of Clinton River Park Trail (CRPT) to keep development moving forward.

Things to bring/wear:
Work gloves.
Boots, long pants, long sleeved shirt, hat.
Bug spray.
Water / hydration pack/ etc.

We will have the CRAMBA chapter trailer on site. We will not be clearing any new trail so the
usual tools will not be used (rakes,loppers etc.). Tools needed for this work day are as follows:
Hammers, Saws, Pry bars etc.. We will have some on hand but if you have personal favorites bring them.

Thank you everyone! If you can make it please let me know either by PM or email. Just so we can get an idea
of how many people we wil have on hand. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thanks, Paul

This is the area where the new bridge will be built.

Did you get the bridge pieces from the old skills park teeters yet? Sad to see them go, but glad they aren't rotting back in the weeds.

Just to be clear, Edison Court trailhead, or the main Dodge Park lot, or somewhere else?

I've been informed that it's the Edison Court trailhead. This is here for those of you that weren't sure.

I'll be there tomorrow, come on out and join us!

Thanks for posting that up Steve. I assumed that folks knew where the trail head
was at. You know what happens when you assume things. :)
