Leader Permission required on this trip - - contact leader before signing up.  Primary focus will be removing a few of the logs that are blocking the trail and brushing.  Some associated tread repair.  Preference will be given to people with crosscut certifications valid on USFS lands, then people that have worked on crosscut trail crews, then people with trail maintenance experience, then others that are physically fit.   We plan to be doing "gardening-level" work all day and occasionally lifting heavy objects. 

It will be a long day.  Check your headlamp batteries, although we usually get to the cars before dark.  Contact the leader for details.  

In addition to the 10 Essentials, plan to wear long pants/long sleeves while working. Bring a large pack to help carrying tools.  Also bring hardhat, work gloves, eye protection, cut-resistant high-top boots, water and lunch.  If you don't have a hardhat one can be provided for you to use with advance notice to leader.
