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

 Registration is closed for this event

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

Location: Matson Hill, new parking lot off Stub Road.

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: We are meeting at the new parking lot off Stub Rd. Take Hwy 94 to Hwy F. Turn right on F. Stub Rd. will be on your left about 3 miles down F. Coordinates of Boone Hays House 38.62328043491183, -90.8225244370483

Why: The St. Charles Parks has approved 3 dedicated bike only downhill lines coming from a central hub. These will be located at the very back of the Hays loop. We will be building a return trail from where the three trails will converge.

The more folks who help build, the sooner we will have some awesome more trails.

We are meeting at the new parking lot off Hwy F. Take Hwy 94 to Hwy F. About 3 miles down Hwy F is Stubb Rd on your left. Take that to the parking lot. Coordinates: 38.62328043491183, -90.8225244370483
