Starting this Thursday we will host a recurring afternoon/evening Trail day on Thursdays so we can continue to make progress on the corridor clearing. Even an hour of your time will help build this great trail system.
When: This will occur every Thursday until further notice as long as the weather is good.
Where: The Trail head on M52 just south of Roe/N Territorials roads.
Time: 4pm until you are ready to leave, but you can show up anytime after 4pm. We will have a sign with details on where we are that day posted at the gate.
•Fun and knowing you will be part of a great new trail system that will become a Destination Trail!
•Safety: Work smart, safety glasses, gloves, long sleeves and pants, bug spray, water, etc
•Completing the DNR Volunteer Waiver Form (we have some on site)
•No bandit or rogue trail builders! We must coordinate our trail days and work with the DNR
