Let’s Pull Together for Trails!

May 18 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

 

 

 

 

Calling volunteers! On Saturday, May 18th let’s all pull together with Greenbelt Land Trust to repair sections of trail at Bald Hill Farm. This trail system is a popular gateway to natural areas, so come show it some love! By pulling together, we can improve our community trails for all to use.

The Activity:

  • Patch damaged sections of trail and re-engineer an eroded switchback. We’ll be shoveling gravel and moving it up to 1 mile in motorized toters. Hand tools will be used to apply gravel to trails.
  • Be active at your own pace for several hours. Hike up to 6 miles on uneven natural surface trail where poison oak may be present. Carry hand tools and gear, shovel, lift, bend, and rake.
  • Safety considerations: Rough, uneven natural surfaces. Poison oak may be present. Loud equipment. Please bring protective gloves or use those provided for you. Wear long sleeves, long pants, and close-toed sturdy footwear.

The Location:

Location is at a to-be-announced site at Bald Hill Farm. Directions will be sent to registered participants prior to the event.
