Gold Hill Chewelah - Saturday trail work party - 10AM start
The rain and cooler temps have returned, and so have our Saturday trail work parties!
Come help develop new trails and maintain the trails we've built in the last year and a half.
We'll be prepping our existing trails to endure the winter season by ensuring drainage features are in place and working. This includes work on our new "flow trail" that opened in early summer.
We'll also be roughing in a new loop at the top of Gold Hill--that will eventually include a few jump-lines and other fun features. Come out and help us build (and maintain) Eastern Washington's newest biking destination.
Background on Gold Hill Community Forest - Gold Hill is a 400 acre community forest recently acquired by the Chewelah Valley Land Trust (CVLT) located just north of Chewelah (the north side of the Golf & Country Club) in Stevens County. Trails are in the early stages of development, so there will be everything from brushing, digging, raking to develop new trails to brush trimming and vegetation management on existing ones.
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.
- When: Meet at 10:00 AM - stay for an hour or two--or longer if you like.
- Where to meet: The new Chewelah Community Forest parking lot ( https://goo.gl/maps/ZFViFhjrTeLRqFV3A) near the Chewelah golf course.
- What you should bring: Work gloves, eye protection, sturdy footwear, and your favorite trail-building tool l if you have one (don't forget sunscreen and water!)
We look forward to seeing you!
