Coe Needs Help!

Want to have some more fun in Coe?

How about coming along for the Coe Trail Advisory Council (TAC) volunteer 2nd Saturday of the month trail-day on Saturday Dec. 10?

(Dec.10, TAC 2nd Sat Trailday #2 2005/06 Season)

We meet at Hunting Hollow at 9am. Please courteously reply to me by Dec. 3 to register, as I need to report attendees to Park staff ahead of time.

The TAC 2nd Sat. Traildays happen rain or shine.We have alternative dry plans and wet plans.

Expecting the dry regime to continue, the project will be brushing the steep corridor of Coit Ridge Trail above White Tank Spring and the singletrack to Pacheco Camp. We will do some treadwork here as well.

To make the offer more attractive to cycling volunteers we are offering vehicle shuttles to Pacheco Camp, as long as you work until lunch, so that you can enjoy a boost ride into the backcountry. Last time two riders took advantage of this. If you do this, you might wish to bringlong some boots for the trailwork, unless you don’t mind working in cycling shoes.

If we enjoy a good turnout, we’ll do some finish work on the south end of Mississippi Ridge Trail after lunch.

If it is raining or has rained a lot preceding the trailday (prohibiting driving) we’ll be hiking up Phegley Ridge Trail to do treadwork on the singletrack section. That’s strenuous, so one couldn’t blame folks for shying away.

Parking for volunteers at Hunting Hollow is free. See the leaders for details when you arrive.

We need a good headcount to assess our equipment and transport needs. If you have a 4wd type vehicle let us know if you’d be willing to help shuttle in the event we need more seats. Usually we’ll have room for 8 volunteers and 5 bikes without needing an extra vehicle.

What to expect:
What to bring:
Food, water, comfy shoes and clothes you don’t mind abusing, eyeprotection, hat, gloves or borrow ours, and a sense of humor.

Questions? Ask!

Now that I’ve said all that, watch it rain! I say, bring it on!

Spread the word! Please, sign up early; space is limited.
