Trail Enhancement Event- Lodi Valley Chapter
October 15 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
After another very productive workday in September our next workday will be Saturday, October 15th, meeting at the west Gibraltar Rock parking area on Hwy V, starting at 9:00 am, to continue our multi-day effort to improve the trail from the kiosk up to the Horton vista. We plan to work until about noon but come for as much or as little time as you can give. Watch for the yellow Ice Age Trail Event signs.
Directions to the parking lot are here: Ice Age National Scenic Trail, Gibraltar Rock Trailhead – Google Maps
We have several tasks for the day and will be joined by a hefty group of homeschoolers from the Madison area. We are very close to finishing the re-location of the trail that will improve the hiker experience. There are also water diversions that need improvement and refreshing/repainting all the yellow blazes. Work will continue building a set of stone steps to eliminate a steep and eroded section of trail. Which tasks we attack that day will depend on the number of volunteers taking part.
All the tools will be provided, just wear long pants and sleeves with sturdy shoes, bring some water, maybe a snack, work gloves (we’ll have extras to use), and your energetic attitude!
