Work Party – Thursday Dec 1 – Council Crest

Work Party on Thursday Dec.1st 9AM to Noon
Meet at Council Crest Circle

Come on out and work off some of this weeks stuffing and mash potatoes by helping SW Trails and PP&R Lands Stewardship sweep the leaves off the 4T trail leading away from the traffic circle at the top of Council Crest. We do this sweeping to keep the trails clear of organic matter that will decay to mud/slop if left un-attended. This is our regular first Thursday Work Party for December 1st starting at 9AM and going til Noon. We will meet at the traffic circle at the top of Council Crest (see map link and map below) . As always we will be guided by the Lands Stewardship folks. There is a lot of 4T trial leading away from the summit and this sweeping activity is easy. So if you have been waiting for a chance to see the 4T and sweep it clean now is the time to join us. Below is a link to the site and a map of meet location.

Attire should be sturdy shoes and work cloths and your choice of winter parka. Parks Land Stewardship will bring coffee water, tools, snacks and gloves. We look forward to seeing you at this work party to keep our world famous 4T trail in shape for winter walking and hiking.
