Milo McIver State Park–final touches on gabion project, restoring damaged tread and slope

February 25 at 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Free

Crew Leader: Patrick Keavney

We have been working on a major project to rebuild a bridge foundation using rock-filled gabions. Now that the project is nearing completion, we need to do some restoration and finish work.

Work will include improving access to stairs near the bridge (the bridge was lifted several inches as part of this project); re-directing creek flow to minimize erosion under the gabions; restoring the slope on the hillside that we have used as access for the project; doing some tread repair and gravel spreading on the 1000′ of trail between the trailhead and the bridge.

What to wear: Boots (tennis shoes are not allowed). Due to the wet conditions in the creek bed, rubber boots are permitted.

                        Long sleeved shirts recommended

                        Rain gear as appropriate for the weather

                        Eye protection is recommended (eye glasses, safety glasses, etc.)

            TKO will supply hard hats and safety glasses
