Build - Greensfelder - Trail Building Day 10-17-20
Date: Saturday, October 17, 2020 - 9am - 1pm
Location: Greensfelder Park, meet at Visitor Center to sign in
Build Plans: We will be continuing to build new trail on Deer Run. We'll be adding nearly 2 miles of brand new sustainable multi-use trail to address fall-line and erosion issues. We will continue where we left off building trail along the hillside. There is some benching to be done and a whole section needs cleaned up from the DitchWitch machine rough-in, including removing duff, cutting a backslope and ensuring the tread drains well. We will be walking down a hillside to begin construction and slowly working our way through the Sections 1-5. The goal is to completely finish each section before moving on. We hope to get to the next drainage and then there's only one long hillside to work on before we link up to the Eagle Valley singletrack that goes to the Visitor's Center. We're getting closer to making a loop!
COVID-19 & Trailbuilding: As most trail crews are small, working outside of normal exposure to the public, trail building is an inherently “socially isolated” activity. GORC believes that utilizing best practices in maintaining a hygienic and safe work site can minimize the potential of exposure to COVID-19 for volunteers and the general public. We will require all volunteers to maintain a physical distance of 6' while working. If that is not possible, a mask will be required. If you feel sick or have been exposed to someone who has recently been diagnosed with COVID-19, please stay home. We will look forward to seeing you at a future trail build.
Directions: Greensfelder Park, Allenton Rd. behind Six Flags. NOTE: Park at the Visitor Center. See map below.
What to bring: Gloves, Sturdy shoes, eye protection, and something to drink on the trail.
