River Bends: 03-Sep-2010

Postby c0nsumer » September 1st, 2010, 8:16 am

Hey everyone... I know it's short notice, but on Friday, September 3, at 6pm we're going to have a small trail trimming / cleaning session out at River Bends.

We'll be trimming back overgrowth on some existing trail that's going to become Phase 2 of our work out there, cleaning up deadfall, and getting the existing segment sorted out so that work can begin on the new segment.

Work will last until roughly 8pm, as that's when it starts getting dark. Please bring typical had tools, including loppers, trimmers, hand saws, rakes, and whatever else you prefer for trimming back brush. Also be sure to have water and something to munch on, just in case.

We'll be meeting in the parking lot near the two-track trail head, which is a segment of gravel trail leading off the parking lot area with a routed sign next to it. Enter the lot off of 22 Mile, stay left, and the trail head will be to your left near the end of the parking lot.

Please check out this thread more info.

Thanks, everyone!

I'll be there regardless, and I don't mind working in rain. I understand that others aren't so fond of it, though.

I'm hoping to have at least one other person there to help since there's a log I'm wanting to remove that'll require two people.

Yay, thanks. :D There's a fair bit of big brush that needs removing.

Thanks to Lan, Shari (I hope I spelled that right), Pete, and Danielle we got the entire existing segment of Phase 2 thoroughly trimmed and with quality sight lines. If you'd like to ride it, it can be accessed from the two track.

I'm sure there will be other opportunities to "balance the slate". :D
