December 2015 Trail Work Party @ Armstrong Trailhead

SUTA’s December 12th Sterling Mine Ditch Trail Work Party

Help maintain the Sterling Mine Ditch Trail!  Great views, lovely winter woods, good company, and an easy 4 to 6 mile hike out-and-back.

When December 12th – Saturday   8:30 AM – 1:30 PM (includes lunch provided by SUTA)

Where  Meet at Armstrong Trailhead off of Sterling Creek Road at 8:30AM. Turn-off for trailhead near the 9 mile marker on Sterling Creek Rd; turn right at the “T” and drive about ½ a mile to the Armstrong Trailhead.   For detailed driving directions click here.

What Brushing and tread work along the Sterling Mine Ditch Trail from the Armstrong Trailhead heading south (flat 4 – 6 mile hike round-trip – a ½ mile  climb up/down the Armstrong access trail to trail).  Install a beautiful new mountain profile sign created by local metal artist Joe Ruskin!  The sign identifies the mountains you see at a great vista about 1.5 miles south of the Armstrong Trialhead.

What to Bring: Wear comfortable hiking or work boots, dress in layers and bring a warm hat and gloves—much of this trail section is shaded in the winter–it can be quite cold.  If you have them, please bring loppers, a pruning saw or a tread tool such as a Pulaski, grubber, or sturdy shovel.  Bring water and whatever special snacks you like.  SUTA supplies additional trail tools, delicious home-baked snacks to fuel you on the trail, as well as lunch.

RSVP:  If you plan to come, please email SUTAoregoncontact@gmail.com so we can plan the work party and food!  Thank you

We look forward to seeing you out on the trail and on a work party!
