This is a great opportunity to combine your love of the outdoors with the gratification of making a significant contribution to the environment.
We will hike from Buckhorn Trailhead to work on trail inside of San Gabriel Wilderness. Plan is to remove logs from trail and improve tread. Hike will be about 8 miles, 1200' gain through hike starting at Buckhorn and ending at 3 Points.
No experience is necessary and we will provide tools, hard hats, gloves. This is a good opportunity to learn cross-cut saw skills. We emphasize technique rather than brute strength to clear downfalls. See how it is done.
Bring plenty of water and your lunch. Forest Service requires us to wear long sleeves, pants, sturdy footwear (boots highly recommended) and eye protection (sunglasses OK). Check weather conditions for mountains (6000' to 7000') for proper clothing.
We have other people attending not listed on this meetup including regular members of our trail crew.
