Where:   Meet at Buncom (corner of Sterling Creek Road and Little Applegate Road) no later than 8:30AMWe will carpool to a private property along Little Applegate Road to access the ditch.  Here’s a map of the area:  Tunnel Ridge to Little Applegate to Bear Gulch

What:  Brushing and tread work along the Sterling Mine Ditch Trail from Wolf Gulch down to the Bear Gulch trailhead.
