WORK DAY CANCELLED DUE TO COLD TEMPERATURE AND CHANCE OF SNOW SHOWERS.
Meet at 9 a.m. on Saturday, January 12, at the trail entrance on Lake Tree Lane in Western Ridge (From Three Notch’d Road, turn on to Park Ridge Drive, go over the railroad overpass then first left on to Lake Tree Lane. After 5th right (Vista View Lane) look for the trailhead on the right side of the street.)
We will be improving drainage on the soggiest parts of the trail — wear boots and clothes that will stand up to mud! We will have shovels and rakes, plus some pruners for general trail clearing.
I am considering offering a prize for the muddiest worker — come and see what it might be.
Check our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Crozet-Trails-Crew-195317697171781) after 8 a.m. that morning in case we have to cancel due to weather.
We will have a CTC workday at Beaver Creek Reservoir Saturday, December 8, at 9:00 am. We will remove several trees that have fallen over the trail, work on improving the trail in some muddy areas, and carry a bench down the trail to place on a point overlooking the reservoir. Meet at the parking lot on the right side of Browns Gap Turnpike immediately after crossing the dam. Wear sturdy shoes or boots, work gloves, and warm clothing. Bring your own tools or use ours.
