Overview: Due to poor conditions on the access road to Larch Mt Trail we have shifted work to the Horsetail Falls trail. We will be improving the tread on the lower sections of the Horsetail Falls trail by building small rock walls, filling eroded sections, and removing trip hazards in the tread.
Project description: This section of the trail is very rough, with many exposed rocks and large roots. We will be building small rock walls and filling behind them to bring the tread above exposed roots, and removing large trip hazard rocks in the trail to re-establish a smooth tread.
Hiking information: We will be working within the first 1/4 mile of the trail.
What to expect: You should expect to participate in this work party for its entirety. For safety reasons, please to not arrive late or expect to be able to leave early.
What to bring: Bring your lunch, snacks, and plenty of water.
