Hey everyone, Chubb needs a little help from the GORC elves.  A part of the trail along the river has disappeared into the Meramac.  In order to keep it safe for everyone this summer, we would like to have a quick re-route put in place.  This will be mostly just grubbing out some honeysuckle and closing the old trail.  I don't imagine it will take more than 2 hours.

 

Details:

Meet up at the West Tyson trailhead (middle) along the railroad tracks on Allen Road at 7:30 a.m.  We will truck in pretty close to the work site.  Knock it out and get outta there.

 

Bring:

Work boots, water and bug spray!

 

No lunch provided, this will be down and dirty just to get the trail open.  We will do some design work this fall to find a better solution to the ever increasing frequency of the 500 year flood.

 

If you could, please post here if you plan on coming.  We would like to have a dozen people to make sure it gets knocked out quickly.

 

Thanks,

Bryan

I plan to be there and will bring a selection of Trail Building tools. I don't think we will need the whole trailer of tools. As Bryan says, please post that you are planning to be there so I can bring enough trail building tools with me.

I plan to go. Think we could also get a small group to go up and clear some of the trees down on the downhills while we are out there?

Just a reminder that we will be meeting out at Chubb THIS Saturday.  If you can come help, it would be much appreciated.  The more people we have, the quicker it will get done.  Please go RSVP on the GORC event page, if possible.

 

Thanks,

Bryan

Thanks to the peeps that came out and help knock out a small reroute in less than 2 hours.  It's not pretty, but gets the job done for summer use!
