October 8th’s club run has been changed from Deer Valley to Meadow Lake. This is so we can work with the Friends of the Fordyce (FOTF) to help repair some sections of the trail that have been damaged due to late lasting snow, runoff, and vehicle traffic on the trail. This is great opportunity for us to help restore one of the best trails in California. It will also allow us to show the four wheel drive community that we are serious about securing an Adopt-a-Trail. FOTF will be feeding all workers on Saturday night so an accurate head count is a must. I will be going up on Friday the 7th and leaving on Sunday the 9th. It looks like the most work will be on Winch hill 5 and between Winch hills 3 and 4. If you’re not sure about driving down the Winch hills to 3 or 4 then you can help with Winch hill 5. I’m sure we could use several support personnel so there will be something for everybody to do, or kick back and relax. This is an official club run so let show them what we got. More information as we get closer to this date will follow.
This is from the link on Pirate 4×4 from Friends of the Fordyce if you need further information:
We going to change our end of year workday from September 17th to October 8th. Please note this on your calendar if you already planned to be there.
Since we will be providing dinner Saturday night it’s very important that you let us know if you plan to stay for the BBQ so we have enough food for all.
After access became available the top part of the trail was still wet and use of the trail created a couple of muddy spots we need to fix before they get any worse. One is in between Winch Hills 3 and 4. We’ll move some trees that fell and harden the trail with rock from the area. The second is a two parter at the approach to Winch Hill 5. We’ll harden both areas with rock taken from the base of the winch hill.
We’ll meet at Meadow Lake Saturday morning and head down to the work areas. Dinner will be back at Meadow Lake after the workday.
