PLEASE NOTE:  February 16 Trail Work Party is POSTPONED to a date TBD

After watching the weather forecast for several days we have decided we should re-schedule the February work to a later date.  However it is a great time to come out and snowshoe on the Jack-Ash Trail perhaps.  Sorry to have to change plans but in the interest of everyone’s safety and enjoyment – it seems like the action to take.

Thank you all for your willingness to help.  We will send out a revised schedule.

Enjoy the snow and rain – we need it!
