    For anyone who has not been to one of our work weekends let me give you the rundown... Camping is available Friday night and is always a good time. Saturday morning we meet in the parking lot just inside the gate by 8:30. We usually have 2 or 3 crews who head out into the back country to work on trail maintenance. This includes brush-cutting, cutting overhanging limbs, painting blazes on trees and general clearing of the trail. We usually do a 2 to 3 mile stretch. We are usually done by 2. We meet back and those heading home are returned to their cars. For those staying, showers are available. We then return back to camp and have a great time cooking and spending time by the campfire. Sunday mornings are spent breaking down and heading home. Hope this helps...
