Quincy Trail Daze – September 8

We are proud to partner with the Mount Hough Ranger District on this special project. The folks in this district understand the importance of more trails and specifically multi-use trails. We are excited to help make this a reality. We will work on South Park shared by equestrians, hikers and bikers.

Project Overview

In partnership with Quincy Natural Foods who adopted the Cascade Trail, we will be working on trimming overgrown maples, narrowing tread spots and armoring some pesky wet spots that have difficulty draining.

The second half of the group will go up the hill to work on Indian Falls Ridge 2 building trail through these amazing rock formations. Access by moto or mountain bike will be ideal as a hike in, it will be a 5- mile round trip.

We will meet at 8:30 for breakfast provided by the Quincy Coop and American Valley Bakery.

Anyone can help out and no experience is required.
