Hi All,

With the nice cool Fall weather, we are now trying to complete some trail work.

Upcoming dates:

Saturday Oct. 19th – Eno River Association Big Sweep cleanup at the old nursery property, near River Forest Park. E-mail Kurt Schlimme [address removed] for details.
This cleanup work is along the newly constructed section of the MST trail between Penny's Bend and West point on the Eno that we worked on last spring.

Saturday Oct. 26th at Falls Lake. Contact Jeff Brewer at [address removed] or [masked] for details.

Eno River MST workdays (please RSVP to
[address removed])

November 2nd – Dig the holes for the foundation of the bridge, and work on the trail construction – we will need 4-10 people.


After the holes are dug, we need to have them inspected.


November 9th – Pour the concrete foundations, and work on the trail construction as needed. -  we will need 4-10 people


November 16th – Bridge assembly – putting it all together- We will need at least 12 people to move the beams into place.


Once the bridge is complete, we will have it inspected, and then it will be ready to use.



Saturday Dec. 7th Eno River State Park. Exact location TBA (or perhaps finishing the bridge if the above work days are rained out.

We have the tools necessary for these workdays, but if someone has a pickup truck they don't mind driving off-road along the sewer line easement to the worksite to transport the bags of concrete, that would be great. Let me know if you can help out with this.

All of these workdays are dependent on good weather!!

Best wishes
