Held on the first Saturday in June each year, “National Trails Day” is a program that encourages the public to get out on local trails and give back to their fellow hikers and outdoor enthusiasts.
This past Saturday morning, J. Wild got dirty and sweaty with sixty other hard workin’ folks volunteering on a 300ft section of the Buttermilk Trail.
Our team worked to relocate the single-track trail uphill to save it from over erosion and excess wear and tear. This energetic bunch of volunteers, tamed the wild underbrush into trail.
We used saws, pickaxes, shovels, rakes and weighted stamps to clear, dig out, shape, and compact the new path through to woods. There was a hoe there too, but nobody used it. Sigh. All in all, a great day!
