JCTRA Trails Maintenance Work Party, Saturday, October 20th

Postby mikeames » Sat Sep 29, 2012 11:14 pm

Our next JCTRA monthly trails maintenance work party will be Saturday, October 20th.

We will leave the Jones Creek Staging Area at 9:00 AM

We will most likely (weather dependent) be using an excavator to re-contour trail surfaces and haul in rock or blocks with the clubs 6x6's.
Please being gloves, lunch/water and dress for the weather.

A dirt bike or ATV is recommended to get to the work site. If you do not have one, please email mike.ames@jctra.org so that arrangements may be made to get you to the work site.

This work party will be funded in part by a Recreational Trails Program (RTP) grant administered b the Washington Recreation and Conservation Office. Your much needed volunteer hours will be applied toward making the 30% match required for this grant.

This work party will count as hours toward a free Discovery Pass!

The October work party went great despite some mechanical issues with our rented excavator. We did have rain, but not all day and that's about the best you can ask for this time of year.
We replaced a clogged and undersized culvert on the beginning of A-Loop and hardened the trail surface over the new culvert with blocks. We also cleaned and/or rebuilt multiple water-bars which should help stave off erosion from the Winter rains.
At some point during the Winter we plan to install some railings to help prevent folks from falling into the water collection holes on either side of the culvert area.
A big thanks to everyone who showed up for this months work party. Without volunteers like you we would not have a riding area to recreate in.
Ed will be posting up some pictures from the work party shortly...

Our next JCTRA monthly trails maintenance work party will be Saturday, November 17th. We leave the Jones Creek Staging Area at 9:00 AM
