Big thanks to the nine folks who came out this Monday to do finishing work on Middle Muir’s Ascension (Eric Blomberg, Mark Derby, Dave Peterson, Steve Diaz, Neil Jacobs, Mike Hupp, Bryson, and Renee. We got so much work done!
Help us finish up the hand work on a new Gateway trail this Saturday, Sept 23rd at 9am. We’ll meet at 9am on the south side of Everitt Memorial at the gravel road a half mile below the McBride Springs Campground. Look for a gravel pullout and small parking area just off the gravel road (we’ll be waiting for you there).
From Everitt Memorial we’ll carpool (high clearance vehicles only) or walk about a quarter mile to the trail. We’ll work our way down, raking and shaping the trail. This is light to moderate work with some amount of walking. We plan to wrap up by noon; stay only as long as you like. Bring water, gloves and a snack. We have hardhats and tools.
This is a great chance to see a new section of trail that’s part of the current buildout. Middle Muir’s Ascension is the section that connects Muir’s from the new parking lot across from the McBride Springs Campground down to Moon Doggie. Once this trail has sat over the winter, it’s going to be really fun to ride and hike.
This is part of a series of fall workdays to finish this trail and go to work on other new trails to put them to bed for the winter. Mount Shasta Trail Association, Bike Shasta and Siskiyou Outdoor Recreation Alliance are partnering to bring people together to help finish the work done by Trail Labs Co and to build a diverse community of trail users who care about and care for these trails and lands.
