The Event:

Greetings Volunteers!
After an incredibly productive work day in June our next work day will be Saturday, July 9th, 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.

Event details:

Saturday, July 9th at 9:00 am.

We have a number of tasks for the day that include scraping and re-staining parts of the kiosk; clearing brush along the re-location of the trail; improving water diversions; refreshing and repainting all the yellow blazes; as well as more work on 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.

This is a 9-year anniversary of this section of our trails as it was originally built in April 2013 by a state-wide Mobile Skills Crew project and involved the OSC charter school from Lodi.

All the tools will be provided, just wear long pants and sleeves with sturdy shoes, bring some water, work gloves (we’ll have extras to use), and your energetic attitude!

Location details:

We will meet at the West Gibraltar Rock Trailhead/Parking lot on Highway V; Watch for the yellow Ice Age Trail Event signs.
