Armstrong Gulch Trail Work Party

November 16, 2013 @ 4:30 pm - 9:00 pm

SUTA’s last 2013 trail work party  on the Armstrong Gulch Trail will be Saturday, November 16th – from 8:30 AM to 1 PM.   To get both new Armstrong Gulch access trails  ready for winter rains and spring use, we would love your help!   We will be fine-tuning and completing  the great work the Job Council and BLM staff has already done.
It’s a fun chance to see both of the new access trails if you have not hiked them yet and an opportunity to participate in the finishing stages of a new trail.  As a bonus you’ll meet new people, get some exercise and contribute to this community trail system.   We also hope to install our first REI- funded kiosk at the trailhead.
Please RSVP if you CAN come – email so we can plan tasks and food.
Meet at the Armstrong Gulch trailhead at 8:30 AM.  If you have any tread tools, rakes, hand saws or loppers, please bring them.  Wear sturdy boots, gloves and layers.  Bring water and snacks as desired.  SUTA will provide  mid-morning home-baked snacks and a simple lunch at the end of our work party.  Light rain does not cancel our work parties.
Directions to Armstrong Gulch Trailhead:  Take Sterling Creek Road (from Jacksonville direction) almost to the 9 mile marker.  Turn left onto the Armstrong-Deming Road (small Sterling Mine Ditch Trail sign is opposite the turn)  Drive about 200 yards to “T” – turn right to Armstrong Trailhead and drive about 1/2 mile to new Armstrong trailhead.
