Workday – April 19th!

What we’ll be doing: We will be working be working the same area as last month — on the upper part of the Bridal Veil Falls Trail repairing erosion damage and improving erosion control on the railroad We will have the necessary wood and hardware to begin rebuilding the large erosion control structure that was object of last work day’s demolition effort.  More of the original wood will need to be replaced than originally thought, so the total effort will be a little larger than initially anticipated.  We may also do some more trail maintenance in the area.  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, April 19, 2014. Meet at 9 am; work until noon.  Meet at the upper trail head of the BVF Trail …directions below.  The work area is about 1/2 mile down-trail from that point.

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.
