Build - Matson Hill - Trail Building Day 04-17-21

Date: Saturday, April 17, 2021 - 9am - 1pm

Location: Matson Hill main trailhead

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.

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: TBD

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.
