We will be holding our first Ridgeline workday to begin clearing trail, this Saturday. We need a few folks that don't mind using a pick, a trimmer, a machete, or a chainsaw. Tools and lunch will be provided.

We will have a load of rock, and our mini muck truck to fill a few mud holes on SWAMP thing, so we will have easy access to Ridgeline. This will take 3 people. We need to clear a few small trees and heavy brush at the entry and exit points. Expect to get your shoes wet. We could use one saw. We will start clearing ridge tops that need only minimal work (picks and shovels, no excavators or skid-steer loaders).  We will mark and rough cut sections that will eventually need equipment (excavators or skid-steer loaders) to complete the trail.  At this time, I do not expect we will be doing any trail maintenance. I will save that for the next regular workday in October.

Here is the important part... Please RSVP [to wes at email above] by noon on Friday. We will need time to accumulate tools and food Friday afternoon. Depending on how many join in, we may need an extra pickup to haul people.

thanks
wes

RIDGELINE will be quite an impressive trail - unlike any other in the current SWAMP arsenal! get out there and help so it can be opened by the FTF :)

What type of trail is this ridgeline going to resemble?

Hmm..not sure I could easily compare it to any of the current SWAMP trails.  It will be just under 3 mi. in length and go up, down, along  and around 40+ ridges, some of them very high.  There will be at least a few 'harder' options.  It will be intermediate/blue level trail.

I hope to come up for the work day.   I also have a pickup that could ferry folks back to the work site.  More intermediate trails are always good.  Ray
