Hey Beachnut, is it OK to bring my 9yr old? Also, are the trails in any shape to ride afterwards?

If you bring your kid, keep him close by. There will be all sorts of folks swinging pulaskis etc. Possibly weedeaters running. There will be things you guys can do that will help out, just make sure you keep him out of harm.

I have not been out to the trail for over a month, but just from the weather, I think it will be ridable this weekend.

Trail Work Day: Frequently asked questions

1. What should I wear?
Basically anything you might wear to work in the yard or garden, if your garden is full of green briar, poison ivy and cactus. Long pants, sturdy boots, long sleeve shirts and a hat are highly recommended.

2. What should I bring?
The club will try to provide as much safety equipment as possible. However, if you have work gloves and safety glasses, please bring them. Bring supplies to be prepared for 4-5hrs out on the trail. A hydration pack with sunscreen, bug spray, snacks and wet wipes can really help you get through the morning. The three main tools of the trade are Loppers, Pulaskis, and Mcleods. The club is always increasing our tool arsenal and will most likely have plenty of tools for everyone to be productive. If you have a favorite pair of loppers or trail tool, feel free to bring it out!

3. What will we be doing?
It’s impossible to say specifically in a FAQ.
Trailwork can include:

Cleanup: pickup of small litter objects, removal of race materials, large scale dumping removal
Maintenance: lopping and clearing deadfall
New trail construction: lopping, dragging cuttings from trail, scraping trail surface clear, bench cutting
Trail Marking: hiking, shooting grades, flagging areas for work

4. Are there things for my kids to do?
Please consider trail work can be dangerous. Something as innocuous as trash pick-up can expose you to hazardous objects. If your children are too young to operate an axe or power tools, you should be prepared to stick very close to them and monitor their safety throughout the day. There are currently no youth activities planned for the work days.

5. Can I bring my dog?
Does your dog wear safety glasses? Seriously, the trail can be a dangerous place when there are multiple weed eaters going, pulaskis swinging, and chainsaws cutting. We all love seeing dogs happily sniffing everything outdoors, but we also all hate seeing one get hurt.

I want a pulaski. Give them sissy loppers to someone else.
