volunteers throughout California for the California State Parks Foundation

Meet us at 9am at the white barn (horse trailer parking area) at Sugarloaf
Ridge State Park at the end of Adobe Canyon Road (if someone's at the entry
booth, tell them you are a volunteer for Earth Day trail work). We will
provide parking passes, tools and Clif bars with beverages and snacks
Bring gloves, a hat and water that you can take with you while working, and
wear long pants, boots or hiking shoes and (maybe) sunscreen.
No experience necessary - we have tools and trained crew leaders with tasks

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

The projects could include two options:
1. Trail repair. Install water bars in 3 locations on upper Brushy Peaks trail and one location on lower Brushy Peaks Trail. Currently water on the trail causes erosion and sedimentation and makes the trail difficult to use in wet weather. The Project will require hiking to the Upper Brushy Peaks Work Site. Some workers will be shuttled.
2. Bald Mt. Road repair. Some areas of the road have eroded and are in need of fill. Road is in danger of becoming impassible, limiting access to back area of park for park staff and visitors. Volunteers will fill in eroded road areas with gravel and compact with vibra plates.
Thank you in advance for considering this large group service to our trails.
