It's finally here some great opportunities at Island Lake (ILRA) have risen in the last few weeks. Dan Harrison, John Burt, and Rich Ouellette have been hard at work to keep the momentum going and have planned some great re-routes on the yellow loop.
As many of you already know ILRA is a trail that is in dire need of some TLC and after the heavy rains this spring the erosion and sand have become huge obstacles on this "beginner" trail system. It has been a long time coming, but the MMBA has approval for 3 re-routes on the yellow loop, and hope to work with the DNR on some other problem areas.
So come out and pitch in...any help is greatly appreciated.
the schedule is:
October 17th (Sun.) 9:30am - Noon (followed by the annual BBBB)
October 23rd (Sat.) 9:30am - 3:00pm full workday
October 24th (Sun.) 9:30am - 3:00pm full workday
Please dress appropriately...long pants boots, gloves, etc. Bring bug spray, water, snacks, and get lots of rest the night before
Please bring wheel barrels, metal rakes, loppers, pruners, leaf rakes, and shovels.
