national public lands day service hike, trailwork in your bones
Join the nationwide volunteer event and take part in building the trails we all enjoy. Each year Wasatch Mountain Club (WMC) members participate in National Public Lands Day with local volunteers from partnering organizations such as the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation (CCF), the Bonneville Shoreline Trail (BST) Committee and the U.S. National Forest Service. The workday will involve continuing construction of the multi-use trail in Cardiff Fork. We will start in the morning and work until lunch time. The CCF is the main organizer for the event and the WMC is a featured sponsor. This trail will provide travel on a trail from the parking area on the Big Cottonwood Canyon Road to the Doughnut Falls trailhead. The new trail will provide hikers an alternative to walking the current road that is shared with motor vehicles. WMC members will use this new trail for travel to more distant features such as Cardiff Mine, Cardiff Pass, and Kessler Peak. Please register at the CCF website: www.cottonwoodcanyons.org The CCF will provide information about the meeting place and time. Remember to bring your 10 Essentials including water, long pants, safety glasses, closed-toed boots and work gloves. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided for volunteers.
