With wonderful warm days upon us, what better way to celebrate than to join us as we makes repairs to another trail. This one is at an unusual location. Note the time change and the vehicle requirements.
WHAT: NMRTA Workday
We will be grooming the section of the Road Canyon Trail (T-234), from the West Side Road going uphill toward the Sunspot facility. Be sure to bring drinking water, sun protection, work gloves and sturdy boots. All tools will be provided. There’s work for all skill levels.
WHEN: Saturday, April 20, 2013. Meet at 8 a.m.; work until noon.
The work site is located some 18 miles or so driving south along the West Side Road from High Rolls (hence the early start time). The road is recommended only for trucks and similar rough road vehicles…not for the average city car. Therefore, we will be carpooling from the Tunnel Stop in High Rolls. Meet at 8 a.m. at the Tunnel Stop; park on either side, but not in front. We will have several pickups and other vehicles to take volunteers to and from the work site. If you have a pickup or similar vehicle and wouldn’t mind carpooling people, we would appreciate that. Our convoy to the work site will be led by the Forest Service.
This is an unusual chance to take an escorted tour through a part of the Sacramento Mountains that most people don’t get to see. If you can’t make the 8 a.m. meeting time, and have suitable transportation, join us when you can.
DIRECTIONS TO THE TUNNEL STOP:
The Tunnel Stop is located on Hwy 82 a short distance uphill from the High Rolls Store; park on either side, but not in front…they have some nice stuff in the Stop, by the way.
