Volunteer Work Day – May 21st!

What we’ll be doing

This month we’re enjoying Cloudcroft again to continue work building the railroad tie retaining wall below the cabin on the Brooks Property. This is hard going and we need several strong folks to trade-off the heavier work.

PLUS, we will be doing some minor trail clean-up, and we will continue work on Bonnie’s Bridge – re-treating the wood, reseating some of the bridge railings, and putting caps on the vertical members to prevent deterioration.This is MUCH less strenuous work than the retaining wall but still necessary, so feel free to come just to work on this.

Again, we will have shirts and caps with the NEW NM Rails-to-Trails Association logo on sale when we gather up!

Again, we’ll be walking down to the worksite from the parking area, detailed below.

When & Where for the Work day

Saturday, May 21st, 2016. We’ll meet at 9am and we’ll work until noon.

Driving Directions

Head on up to Cloudcroft as you normally would. We’ll be parking and meeting at the Village Spur Trailhead parking area where Highway 130 intersects with Highway 82. It’s easy to spot there on your right just as you enter Cloudcroft if coming in from High Rolls or Alamogordo.
