Next SMT ShinDig Is Saturday, May 13!
Saturday, May 13, 2017, 9:00am
This Saturday we'll be working on the Rainbow Trail located to the west of Methodist Mountain Road/CR 108. There are some sections of trail where we will be building rolling dips, nicks, and removing the cupped berm on the downhill side of the trail.
We will meet at the junction of CR 108 and the Powerline just up above where the Little Rainbow Trail crosses CR 108. From there we will car pool to the site, or the motorcycles can go to the Rainbow Trail west of Methodist Mountain Road, a little over a mile, to meet up with the hikers. Volunteers need to wear hiking boots, gloves, and bring water, sunscreen, snacks, hard hats if they have them, and an attitude for learning, meeting new people, and having a good time!
Lunch will be provided. Since this ShinDig takes place so high up the mountain, total time may be a bit longer than other ShinDigs.
