Buffalo Creek Little Scraggy Trail Approved; Trail Work September 14, 2013

UPDATE: Due to the sketchy weather forecast for Sunday, we are canceling Sunday's trail work, but we will still be working on Saturday (tomorrow) and will have a light breakfast and the post-work BBQ for the volunteers. You are welcome to camp this evening but we will be closing the campground when we are done Saturday afternoon.

I hope you will still join us for tomorrow's trail work and I look forward to seeing you there.  If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact me at keith.clarke@comba.org

Let the fun begin!  Little Scraggy trail is about to become a reality.  On Saturday, September 14th  and Sunday, September 15th, we’ll begin work on the newest trail in Buffalo Creek.  We will spend both days working on the Kelsey Campground loop and continuing on Little Scraggy loop. Since the main tread will have already been machine cut, we will focus on finishing the trail tread using hand tools.  We provide the tools and guidance so there’s no experience necessary.

After the trail work on Saturday, we’ll hang out and relax over an evening BBQ or feel free bring your bike and go for a ride. We’ll be camping at Kelsey Campground Saturday night and there will be space for everyone.

Please register so we can plan accordingly and contact you if things should change. 

We’ll meet at Kelsey Campground Saturday morning at 9:15 am (see map).  It’s about 3 miles south of the intersection of Forest Service Road 550 and Highway 126 on Highway 126.  Look for the COMBA sign.  We will have coffee and light breakfast items available on Saturday.  

Dress in sturdy work clothes including boots, long pants (recommended), long sleeve shirt, work gloves, hat and sunglasses.  Remember to bring water, your own lunch, sunscreen and a pack to carry them in.  A hydration pack works great for this purpose.  If you plan on camping Saturday night, please bring extra water.  The campground will be officially closed and the water may be turned off.

Come for one day or both but come and help COMBA kick off the construction of the newest Buff Creek Trail!  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Keith Clarke at keith.clarke@comba.org.  See you on the 14th!
