Trail Stewardship – 5 Oaks SOLD OUT

This Event has Passed

If you use the wilderness park for hiking, biking, photography or just relaxing, Trail Stewardship will be right up your alley!  Get up close and personal with the trail you use; you’ll see the trails in a whole new way. No experience necessary.  This is FUN hard work.  Whatever your skill level is, there is a job to do:  clearing drains of brush; building “gargoyles” to better define the trail; moving dirt or building an in-slope turn. We will be using tools such as loppers, picks, shovels, and McLeods to restore features that protect the trail and/or build new features to improve trail sustainability.

Remember:  let’s keep users ON the trail and water OFF the trail to prevent fragmentation of our precious wilderness. Expect to hike up to 4 miles during our morning. Please wear long pants, closed-toed shoes and sun protections. Bring plenty of water.

Please note the following safety precautions and protocols:

  • Pre-registration on is required for this event. No walk-ups.
  • Each individual adult must sign the liability waiver – provided by the lead volunteers – when they arrive at the event.
  • Maintain proper physical distancing, a minimum of 6 feet, between yourself and all other members of the group always.
  • Minimum age of 16 years old accompanied by a parent/guardian.
