    We will clear some of the eastern side of trails (Sat/Sun).  (Indicate upon registering if clearing somewhere else).  This is a great opportunity to view and get to know the eastern trail sections. 

    We will be transported by motor boat to access points along the trail system.

    Wear hunter's (blaze) orange.  No white or beige tops. Rain gear and waterproof boots will be a good idea with a day pack. Plan to walk at least 4 Km \day

    Location:  Nine Mile Marina

    Accommodations:  Em's Cabins.  Bring sleeping bags.  You can stay from Friday afternoon until Monday morning.

    Food:  Shared meals, cottage and cabins with cooking facilities and beds.  Bring your own sleeping bags and lunches. Hint: bring as much food as you want. There are 2 fridges in a cottage and cabin with a gas stove. Well water is available. 

    Costs:  Car pooling paid to drivers by participants. We operate on a volunteer basis and do what we can with what we have . However In the event that gas costs need to be claimed by the driver a credit may be applied for on as needed basis.  Accommodations are covered by the club.

    Event Organizer: Chester P.


    Please register asap so arrangements can be made for car pools, and cabins can be booked.
