Build - Matson - Trail Building Day 12-03-2022

Date: Saturday, December 3, 2022 - 9am - 1pm

Location: Matson Hill Park, meet at the new Hays Home parking lot off of Stub Road.

Build Plans: We will be benching and rock work on the 3rd downhill line.

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. If you feel sick, please stay home.  We will look forward to seeing you at a future trail build.

Where: Matson Hill Park, meet at the new Hays Home parking lot off of Stub Road.

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.
