Build - Matson Hill - Trail Building Day 11-13-21

Date: Saturday, November 13, 2021 - 9am - 1pm

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

Build Plans: It will depend on current the progress on the downhill lines on the Hays property as to where we will work on this day.

We also are going to look at re-routing the Matson Hill loop where the shallow spring flows down the rock shelf for weeks after a rain, but we don't have the layout done at this time.

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: TBD

New Matson Hill trails

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.
