Trail Work: Road Hollow Campaign
Dec 1 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Full Details: http://svbcoalition.org/bridge-road-hollow-campaign/

We have four (weekend) trail work days left in 2018 to work towards improving and maintaining trails in the George Washington National Forest.

Why: You recreate on trails in the National Forest and MANY of these trails see little to zero maintenance during the year. The Forest Service has virtually ZERO capacity for trail maintenance and relies on volunteer groups

Where: We will be working on the Road Hollow or Bridge Hollow Trails both of which are accessed from the “Mountain House” parking area off of US250. If you want to carpool you can meet at Mr. J’s Bagels on US 42 South in Harrisonburg for a ride out to the site.

When: 9 AM Meet at Mountain House off of US250 Click for Google Map

What will we do: Lots of benching or digging work is needed to reestablish the trail tread in places where it may not be in the best of shape.

What to bring: Sturdy closed-toe shoes (boots if you have them), gloves, long pants, long sleeves, snacks, and water.
