Rails to Trails Volunteer Day

Late Notice:

Hello All,

This one is a little different!

WHAT: NMRTA Workday. We will be grooming the section of the Road Canyon Trail (T-234), from the West Side Road going uphill toward the Sunspot facility. Be sure to bring drinking water, sun protection, work gloves and sturdy boots. All tools will be provided. There's work for all skill levels.

WHEN: Saturday, April 20, 2013. Meet at 8 a.m.; work until noon.
SPECIAL INFORMATION: The worksite is located some 18 miles or so driving south along the West Side Road from High Rolls (hence the early start time). The road is recommended only for trucks and similar rough road vehicles…not for the average city car. Therefore, we will be carpooling from the Tunnel Stop in High Rolls. Meet at 8 a.m. at the Tunnel Stop; park on either side, but not in front. We will have several pickups and other vehicles to take volunteers to and from the work site. If you have a pickup or similar vehicle and wouldn’t mind carpooling people, we would appreciate that. Our convoy to the worksite will be lead by the Forest Service.
This is an unusual chance to take an escorted tour through a part of the Sacramento Mountains that most people don’t get to see. If you can’t make the 8 a.m. meet time, and have suitable transportation, join us when you can.

DIRECTIONS TO THE TUNNEL STOP: The Tunnel Stop is located on Hwy 82 a short distance uphill from the High Rolls Store; park on either side, but not in front…they have some nice stuff in the Stop, by the way.

    they do trail work every month... probably should get them on the Calendar early... go work... then hike. Maybe camp out and hike two days! of course, they are about to close down the Forest in a few weeks!

    Doing a hike I've been procrastinating in the Las Cruces area, unfortunately
