Workday – February 15th!

What we’ll be doing: We will be working on the upper part of the Bridal Veil Falls (BVF) Trail repairing erosion damage and improving erosion control on the railroad bed.  We may have some heavy equipment available to help ditch cleanout and dirt moving.  Also, if approval is obtained in time, we will start a major repair/rebuild effort of a large erosion control structure that has significant damage — its been in place over 100 years.  Be sure to bring your own drinking water, sun protection, work gloves and sturdy boots. All tools will be provided. We plan to work until noon.

When/Where: Saturday, February 15th, 2014. Meet at 9am at the Harris Hollow gate area (directions below). We’ll walk downhill from there to the Falls and work areas. We have special permission from the private land owner to use this shortcut. We plan to work until noon.

Directions to the Bridal Veil Falls Upper Trail head from Hwy 82 in High Rolls (click this link for a Google map): The Harris Hollow gate is north of High Rolls. From Hwy 82 in High Rolls, turn north at the High Rolls General store onto Cherry Blossom Lane for .3 miles, the west (left) at the stop sign onto Cottage Row. Drive .45 miles and turn north (right) onto Fresnal Canyon Road and travel .9 miles to the upper trailhead on the left. This is also the location of the lower trail head of the Grand View Trail.

If you’ve never been to Bridal Veil Falls, this is a great opportunity!

Thanks!
