    DuPont Trail workday Nov 23rd

    Pisgah Area SORBA DuPont trail workday- Sat. Nov. 23 2013
    Join us for a pre-thanksgiving workday (we are thankful for all the great trails we ride) in DuPont State Recreational Forest. We will be working on Big Rock Trail with a range of trail work activities (site line corridor improvements, water management, general tread work, and some rockwork). No experience is needed; we will have trained project leaders to direct the work. You do not have to be a PAS member to attend and contribute. All needed tools will be provided.
    Sat. Nov. 23rd, meeting at 10AM
    Meet at the Corn Mill Shoals parking lot off Cascade Lake Road. We will have a very short walk into the worksite.
    The plan is work for several hours leaving good time in the afternoon for an after trail work ride.
    Please bring:
    Water, lunch and snacks
    Good footwear, glasses, work gloves and clothing in layers to allow adjustments as the weather warms up.

    Always a good idea to have one, just in case.

    Tool wise: If you have a pair of loppers or a shovel please bring such. Other than that, we have all the trail tread tools needed. Slight chance of rain, but it is early yet to predict what is going to happen Sat.

    We had a total of 10 folks come out for our workday. The weather was perfect for trailwork, cool but not cold and overcast. It was a hard working bunch and we completed the planned tasks by 1PM. The main focus of the work was cleaning out drains and minor treadwork. Thanks to everyone who came out to help.

    Looking though old photos today and I had one from this area on Big Rock from spring, you can see the before and after our work from this workday back in Nov. We will crank back up with workdays later this month.
