PAS – Bent Creek -Trail Work Day – 11/12/2016 –
Location to sign in for trail work:
Meet at Rice Pinnacle parking
Information about trail work day:
We’ll replace the entire first section at the east end of the bridge on Deer Lake Lodge trail (the one just down the hill from Rice Pinnacle parking).
The plan is essentially the same as this past April when we replaced the west end of the bridge.
We’ll remove the existing deck boards (lots of rusty nails) and stringers, remove the packed soil, and re-build it with new materials. In addition we’ll dig out about half of the second section – also packed with soil – and install new deck boards.
If you plan to attend please e-mail.
All volunteers are required to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) in accordance with USFS guidelines.
Pisgah Area SORBA has hard-hats, glasses and gloves for your use, though we suggest you bring your own. You can borrow them for the day or purchase on-site for future use. Due to safety regulations, bicycle helmets are not acceptable.
Long pants and non-slip footwear are also required. We suggest you also plan on bringing a day pack with adequate food, water and weather gear (rain shell, etc.) Crew Leaders reserve the right to assess each volunteer’s PPE to ensure compliance with land manager agreements.
Hope to see you turning dirt at our next trail work day.
