Work Day – Oct 18th!

What we’ll be doing: we will continue the work on the upper part of the Bridal Veil Falls trail (south side). The Forest Service has just completed some more ditching along the trail bed using their excavator and we need to theadjusting and clean up to provide the proper erosion control. The trail saw a lot of erosion damage this past summer. All tools will be provided!

Be sure and bring your own drinking water, sun protection, work gloves and study boots. Depending on how the weather looks on Saturday, you may want to bring rain gear as well. As always there will be work for all skill level and ages.

When/Where: Saturday, October 18, 2014. Meet at 9am and we’ll work until noon. Meet at the upper trailhead of the Bridal Veil Falls trail. A link to the map and further directions are below if you need them. The work area will be about 1/2 mile down trail from where we’ll meet.

Directions to the Bridal Veil Falls Upper Trail head from Hwy 82 in High Rolls (click this link for a Google map):  WARNING! The Apple Festival will be going on the weekend of the work day! We suggest you leave just a bit earlier than normal to make it to the meet up on time. Also, consider the slightly different route than what you may normally take (link to the alternate route in Google Maps above): 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 then turn RIGHT (east) at the stop sign at Cottage Row. Very soon after you take that right, take a sharp LEFT onto Railroad Drive for about .5 miles and turn right (north) 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’re coming from the Alamogordo area, it may be wise to head over to La Luz and take Laborcita Canyon Road to Fresnal Canyon Road to avoid the Apple Festival altogether! Link to a Google Map showing that route – from La Luz to the Harris Hollow gate HERE

Thanks!
