National Public Lands Day! Chewelah - Gold Hill Community Forest - Trail Work Party - 9AM
Join us for National Public Lands Day! Help us develop a brand new network of mountain biking trails on Gold Hill (recently acquired by the Chewelah Valley Land Trust) and maintain and enhance the existing trails. Gold Hill is just north of the Chewelah (near the Golf & Country Club) in Stevens County. Trails are in the early stages of development, so there will be everything from scraping, digging, raking to sculp trails to brush trimming and vegetation management.
CVLT & Evergreen will have some tools on-site to get this job done—but if you have a favorite trail-building tool (e.g. shovel, rake, Rogue hoe, McCleod, loppers, or similar), please bring those along. Gloves, sturdy shoes/boots and safety/sun glasses strongly recommended.
Background: Gold Hill (aka the Chewelah Community Forest) is an amazing 400 acre site with sweeping views of South Central Stevens County which recently acquired by the Chewelah Valley Land Trust (CVLT) who is working closely with the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance to develop a network of multi-user trails on this property.
