Trailwork Day, February 14th

Yes, it's on Valentine's Day...but it's a made up holiday anyway.

Wudchuk Run Trail Work Day

This winter we plan to finish the Camp Lake of the Woods area of Swope Park. We have approximately 2 miles of Wudchuk bliss to go.

9a-noon
In the area we'll be working the corridor has already been cleared, so we will be doing benchcut and rock work. If you haven't done this type of work before, come anyway. It will be a great opportunity to learn.

Meeting Place:
Hogan/swimming pool at Camp Lake of the Woods on top of the hill. From the main Swope trailhead, drive up Oakwood Drive, take a left at the "Y" and continue on about 300 yards. See map on the right hand side of the page for directions to the Swope Park trails. We will then drive to our hike in point.

Tools:
The usual trail tools...Rakes, McLeods, Rock bars, Pulaskis, Rogue Hoes, Handsaws, etc. If you don't have tools, come anyway...we should have plenty.

Recommended Items:
Long pants
Boots/Shoes with protection
Work Gloves
Safety Glasses
Bug Spray
Food and beverages

Trail Tasting Afterwards:
If the trails are rideable and/or hikeable, we'll do a trail tasting after the workday.
