June 4, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm Eagle Ridge Trailhead
We will split crews and work two projects on the Sierra Canyon Trail in preparation for the Genoa Peak Madathon Run!
One project will repair and fill a wooden causeway damaged by heavy spring flows. This is about an 8-mile round-trip walk from Eagle Ridge TH
The second project will continue further up clearing the trail of rocks, branches, cones and a couple fallen trees all the way up to near the top. This is anywhere from a 10-19 mile round-trip walk, just depends on how far you are comfortable going.
Meet at the Eagle Ridge TH at 8am on Sunday, June 4th. Bring plenty of food. Fill your bottles up as usual at the Sierra Canyon Spring below the causeway project. Wear long pants, long-sleeved shirt, hiking shoes, sunglasses and sun protection. Tools and hard hats are provided.
Please contact email@example.com if you plan to attend and which project you'd like to help with!
