Just wanted to know if your group might have some members who would want to participate in the Sutherland Trail Maintenance events that are planned for the first 2 weeks of December.
The Sutherland trail is near OroValley/Tucson in Santa Catalina mountains. We're going to be performing 4 of 5 days of work on the trail that has several spots that have fallen into disrepair. Although most of the trail is OK, it could be a great trail if it was brought back up to FS trail standards according the FS notebook on construction and maintenance version 2007, which is what the Washington Trail Association uses for it's projects.
If there are any folks who would like to participate this coming December in the 3day 2nite backpacking upper trail work event, or the 2 day lower trail work event, I'm sure they would be able to make a difference. my email is [masked], and I'm an event organizer on the Baja Arizona hiking and Tucson hiking meetup groups.
This is a courtesy posting only - if you would like to attend, please contact Mr. Noving directly. Sounds like a great time.
