TRIP TITLE / DATES / IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS:
Car Camp One Night Terrace Creek Trail Brush/Tread/Logging
IMPORTANT: LEADER APPROVAL REQUIRED IN ADVANCE. NO EXCEPTIONS.
VWA TRAIL CREW LEADER:
We have received permission to work on this closed trail. However, all participants must be approved in advance. Our car camp location is primitive with NO water. You must bring enough for two days.
We are working near the trailhead this time and likely not go further than a half mile down from the Wilderness sign.
We will work on removing brush and restoring tread AND removing PO. If you are not too allergic, we could use your help.
These Trails are closed to the public. Our work will be the first step to reopening both the Terrace Creek Trail and eventually the Pine Ridge Trail. We need your help!
However, this trip is limited to participants who have been on trips before. The leader MUST be able to vouch for you before you can participate. That being said, we need all the help we can get to clear this trail. This will be a good introduction and trailwork.
MEET: Big Sur Multi Agency Facility 8 A.M. DON'T BE LATE!
IMPORTANT: Meetup directions may not be the best. In you mapping program, search for:
Big Sur Station, 47555 CA-1, Big Sur, CA 93920
The Big Sur Multi Agency Facility is at Big Sur Station. It is on the east (inland) side of Highway One, about a half mile south of Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. For those coming from the north, after you pass Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, you cross the Big Sur River on an inconspicuous bridge. Then as you start the uphill, there is a left turn lane; use this left turn lane to turn in to the Multi Agency Facility at Big Sur Station. If you go over a larger bridge, and get to the Big Sur Bakery, you have gone too far.
LEADER APPROVAL REQUIRED due to the access issues; contact leader for acceptance on this trip and meeting details.
