TRAIL DAYS - Meadow Trail Connector, August 5th

Saturday August 5, 2017 will be the second very special Trail Day for the Mammoth Lakes Trail System this summer, as we gather to work on and celebrate the grand opening of the Meadow Trail Connector, the second new trail in the Sherwins from the Sherwins Area Recreation Plan (SHARP). Conceived by members of the Sherwins Working Group in 2009 and documented in SHARP, the Meadow Trail Connector will be the second new trail to be built in the Sherwins this summer with a ribbon cutting at 1:00 PM after completing our day of trail work.

Please join Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra and Mammoth Brewing Company at 8:30 AM on Saturday, August 5 at the Sherwins Trailhead next to the propane tanks on Sherwin Creek Road parking lot.  Follow the signs for a free bagel breakfast brought to you by Old New York Deli, along with a safety talk and work assignments. Volunteers will be conducting trail construction and finish work on the new Meadow Trail Connector, installing new directional trail signs, and conducting general trail maintenance and clean-up efforts on nearby trails. Volunteers will get an introduction to trail maintenance techniques, and those interested in being regular members of the Mammoth Lakes Trail System stewardship team should be sure to come get trained up for future Trail Day projects.

PLEASE NOTE: Thanks to Mammoth Brewing, all volunteers for this special day of trail work will receive Bluesapalooza wrist bands for either Saturday night or Sunday music!
