Trail Building in the Santa Rita Mountains with REI

April 22 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free

ATA will provide: Lunch to carry and eat on trail. Water and drinks for after the event, tools, gloves, hard hats, we have some eye protection but sunglasses work well if you have a pair. What to bring: Water, snacks, sturdy shoes, long pants/sleeves, hat, eye and sun protection, gloves if you have them, and layers – it could be cool at the start and in the shade but warmer in the sun while we’re working, and when we’re done. What work to be prepared for: Plan to be out for 4-5 hours with lots of rest and breaks. You’ll be carrying hand saws, loppers, shovels, rakes, etc. Work will consist of general trail maintenance, corridor widening, tread work. We will break into groups with a crew leader for each to help explain sustainable trail design and construction. We will hike a total of 1-2 miles in each direction as an out and back working on trail as we go.
