|Fisher Farm Park Training
Well...the moment we've all been waiting for has arrived. I have been given the "Green Light" to start the trail at Fisher Farm Park. In preperation I'm inviting anyone who has had little or no experience in trail construction, to meet at Lake Norman State Park on Sun. to help with the start of Phase III of the Itusi trail. This will be a great opportunity to get training in the "Art of Trailbuilding".
Where to meet: Follow the park road past the trail parking lot to St. Johns road, take a right and look for the first gated dirt road on the right.
When: Meet there at 8:30 am.
Directions: I-77 N to exit 36. Turn left at exit. This is Hwy 150. Follow 150 West until you reach Perth Rd. Turn right at Perth rd. Follow Perth until you see State Park Rd. on the left. Turn left and follow road into the park.
What to bring and wear: Bring water and maybe a snack. Wear long pants, bboots and wear layers. (Trust me, you'll be taking your jacket off after 20-30 mins.) Also bring a pair of gloves to protect your hands. And last but not least, bring your enthusiasm and excitement. You will definately think differently about the trails after doing some work on them. So have fun!
If anyone has any questions or concerns, please feel free to e-mail me. Also if you live in the Mooresville/Davidson area and you want to car pool, let me know.
