Another year has passed & it's time for National Trails Day @ Washington Valley Park AKA Chimney Rock. It's next Saturday June 1st @ 9.00am. We have 2 projects planned. 1 on Blue & another on the White trail.

Meeting at 9am at the Newmans Lane parking lot. Might be a good idea to wear some sturdy boots as we will be walking to the work site. Bring work gloves if you have some. If not, we have extras for you to borrow. Bug spray might be a good idea but we have some of that too if needed.

Yes you get your Paydirt points if you show up & lots of good karma.

Post up if you can make it so we can plan how many doughnuts we need.

If the TM is canceled due to rain, I'll post the cancellation here or you can call 908-285-3800 that morning.

Hope to see you there.

About National Trails Day:

Since 1993, National Trails Day has been celebrated annually on the first Saturday in June. National Trails Day is focused on specific goals, raising awareness of trails and Trails for All Americans, building partnerships and alliances that work together beyond National Trails Day, and broadening the constituency for trails. This annual event has grown from a handful of grassroots events in 1993 to over 3,000 events across the country.

The unifying idea of National Trails Day is Trails for All Americans; a plan to establish a nationwide network of trails that comes within 15 minutes of every American. These pathways would link together as part of the nationís infrastructure of greenways, like the interstate highway system.
Through National Trails Day local trail clubs, the outdoor business community, and local, state, and federal government agencies are joining together to make this plan a reality.
The Somerset County Park Commission will be taking part in the celebration in an attempt to improve and maintain our many miles of trails, as well as, to educate people about hiking, biking, and the trails that surround them.
In recognition of National Trails Day, the Park Commissionís Park Ranger Department will be hosting a trail maintenance project at Washington Valley Park, Bridgewater Township. The project is scheduled for Saturday, June 1st, 2012, starting at 9am.
