    I will do my best to meet there. I am assuming we are going to meet at the clubhouse?

    If you go, Ivan, let me know and I will tag along/carpool in some way. What tools would need to be brought along?

    Go

    I would encourage those from Boise to drive up and do a day of trail work at Jug Mtn. They are developing a great trail system that has lots of possibilities. And this is the time of year the soil digs and packs well.

    If my daughter wasn't in a soccer tourny this weekend, I would be all over this.

    Hope to see the CIMBA trail crew for a day of digging this spring.

    Thanks,

    Mike e.

    JMR and CIMBA have some McLeods, but it if you have your own that would be helpful. The soil is mostly decomposed granite and moves pretty easily. Bring work gloves and a water bottle. Meet at the clubhouse and there will be a Pinzgauer shuttle to the trailwork location.

    I flagged the work yesterday and scared up a 4x4 bull elk! More importantly though, we should be able to finish lower Vandelay trail. This will make the continuous singletrack connection from the Upper Res to the Clubhouse. The trail is intermediate, but with A LOT of spots for fun features.

    Will there be any use for loppers or saws? Just moving dirt or are we doing any bench cutting or brush work? Thinking of what tools would be welcome to throw in the truck.

    We'll be doing all aspects of trailbuilding- lopping branches to clear the corridor, clearing a few larger limbs with a saw, digging some bench and treadwork. There's something for everyone. We have a chainsaw and a handsaw and shovels and McLeods. If you have loppers that would be helpful. A McLeod is always useful too. Thanks for coming up to work!

    It was a great trail work day. We got fed at the Jug Mountain clubhouse and there was even raffles for those that volunteered. Not to mention that the trail itself is looking VERY promising with a lot of it getting cut in that day. Let me/us know next time you are working, I will drive up even if there is just a handful of folks planning to work.
