Trail Build - Matson Hill - 11-09-19

 Registration is closed for this event

Date: Saturday, November 9, 2019 - 9am - 1pm

Location: The Matson Hill Park main trail head

Where:

(The most straightforward way) from the Highway 40/94 interchange: Take Highway 94 South approximately 13 miles. Go past Defiance to Matson, turn right and follow Matson Hill Rd to the top of the hill. Turn right onto Matson Road (now paved) and go ~ .5 mile to the trailhead, which will be on your left. Click Here for Park location.
 
If the lot would fill up, parking is available at the Katy Trail Matson Depot at the junction of Hwy 94 and Matson Hill Road.  You can carpool up from there.

Why: We will put in one new approximate 800' reroute with features so we'll need some good help on this one. Reroute is on the Matson Hill Loop going CW out of the trail head parking lot. Wear good supportive shoes and bring your water. There will be a bit of a hike to get to the work areas.

Got Q's?: Please read the link to pilznr's "What to expect at a Trail Build Day" - http://forum.gorctrails.com/index.php/topic/2265-what-to-expect-at-a-trail-building-day/.  Or, post up here, and we'll do our best to answer things for ya.

We also want to make sure everyone knows there are no restroom facilities at this location.

Weather: The decision to cancel will be made by SCCP's and posted on the Trail Hotline (636-707-0011, click the programs prompt), so if there is any doubt, please check there before heading out.  We will do our best to update the forum/Twitter, but that will rely upon available cell coverage.  
 
GORC/SCCP's will provide on site instruction, tools, gloves, safety glasses, and a post event lunch*.
*Please contact us if you have any specific food requirements (veggie or food allergy), and we'll do our best to assist you.
 

Lunch will be provided.
