Trailwork Day at USNWC
WHAT: 3-Hour Trail Building Event
WHEN: Sunday Feb 18th from 9:00 am-12:00pm
WHERE: Meet at the USNWC River Center of the @ 9:00 am (Main Building)
HOW TO GET THERE: 820 Hawfield Road Charlotte, NC 28214
BRING: Warm clothes, water, boots, gloves, and a garden tool such as a shovel, pick, pruners, or metal garden rake. Could even use some wheel barrows for those adventurous souls looking to haul out some trash. The Trailblazers provide a limited number of cool fire fighting hand tools like the Pulaski, Mattock, and Mcleod to those adventurous enough to try. Actually they are way more efficient and fun to use!

The trail system at the USNWC exists because of volunteer support. Become a part of the USNWC trail system and help maintain the health of the trails. Under the direction of the Tarheel Trailblazers the volunteer goal of the February work days will be to connect the remaining 1.5 mile section of the Figure 8 Loop. This construction will consist of clearing new trail, bridge construction, and armoring several parts of trails. Additionally several other trail needs could use attention. Please come, grab a friend and lend a hand for a few hours. It is truly amazing what can be done in 3 hours. With the knowledge of the Trailblazers, volunteers gain an understanding of sustainable trail building techniques and add to the unique singletrack trail system at the USNWC.

ASAP please RSVP to if you and any others will attend. We will have to prepare for the number attending. Your efforts will help in the final stage of trail connection. Thanks for your time and consideration!
