Winter is a great time to see trash off trail and get it picked up, weather permitting. Our MLK Day of service will be the Saturday before MLK Day. A light work day is planned and this is a great opportunity to walk the trail while doing good. We'll provide pick up tools, trash bags, and gloves. We hope you’ll join us.
Happy New Year!
