About the Event

We will be hiking out to the Notch Trail to work on a very muddy section of trail that has been rutted out with limited options to reroute. To remedy this problem we will be building a turnpike structure out of nature materials found in the area: Hemlock Trees, rock and soil.

A turnpike is a way to get the water off of the trail tread by raising the tread up and stabilizing the surface. Work will include peeling logs, hauling bucket loads of dirt and rock while working in and around a wet buggy area. Snacks and refreshments will be provided after the event.

What to bring

Please bring your hiking/work boots (muck boots preferred), water bottle, bug spray and work gloves (we have spares if you don't have any). Tools will be provided but feel free to bring your own shovel, loppers and/or handsaw from home.

Youth Instructions

Youth volunteers are welcome to join the event, but must be accompanied by parent/guardian for the entirety of the experience.
