Come join us to help maintain the Sterling Mine Ditch Trail. Great views, lovely woods and an easy flat hike 4 miles out and back. We may split into two groups, hiking in from both trailheads.
When: November 14th– Saturday 8:30 AM – 1:30 PM (includes lunch provided by SUTA)
Where: Meet at Deming Trailhead off of Sterling Creek Road at 8:30AM. The turn off for the Deming Trailhead is near the 9 mile mark on Sterling Creek Road onto the Deming/Armstrong BLM road (small Sterling Mine Ditch Trail sign on right side of Sterling Creek Road). Take BLM road to “T” and turn left, drive 9/10s of a mile up to the Deming Trailhead. For detailed driving direction visit click here.
What: Brushing and tread work along the Sterling Mine Ditch Trail from Deming to Armstrong Trailhead. (Flat 3-4 mile hike flat round-trip)
What to Bring: Wear comfortable hiking or work boots, dress in layers and bring gloves. 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.
