SUTA’s Last Trail Work Party of the season, Saturday April 9!

April 9 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm

Come out and join us for our last volunteer trail work party of the season on Saturday April 9th at 9:00 at the Bear Gulch trailhead on Little Applegate Rd.  We will be finishing up brushing out and opening up a new section of the Sterling Mine Ditch Trail that is in private ownership and for which we have recently secured an easement for public use! This newly available segment of the SMDT will create a sweet 3+-mile (ish) lollipop loop from the Bear Gulch trailhead.

When:  Saturday, April 9th ~ 9:00 AM – 1:30PM
(SUTA provides snacks and lunch!)

Where:  Meet up at the Bear Gulch Trailhead at 9:00.
(Check the SUTA website if you need directions

What:  Trail maintenance on the Sterling Mine Ditch trail  – trimming and grubbing of encroaching vegetation and repairing the trail tread in some areas. We cancel only if heavy rain/snow is forecast. Check your email before leaving home that morning if weather looks iffy.

What to Bring: Wear comfortable hiking or work boots, work gloves, and dress appropriately for the weather. Bring your own water bottle and SUTA will have an Igloo cooler of water at the trailhead for refills (this helps reduce our plastic use).  Also bring your favorite trail snacks if you like, and SUTA is sure to provide some yummy home-baked goodies!  SUTA will provide tools, but if you have a favorite tread tool, loppers, or pruning saw, bring them.  We should be able to spread out and be safe, but please bring a mask in case you are working in close proximity to others.  SUTA volunteers will have lunch ready when you get back to the trailhead!

RSVP:  If you plan to come, please email so we can plan the lunch and snacks!  Thank you!

Thank you for helping us keep these community trails open!
