The Shedroof Divide 512 and Grassy-Hall Divide 533 are in need of a reboot. Volunteer to assist our experienced crew leaders by pruning back the ever-encroaching brush, busting out the slough and berms to widen the trail, and reshaping its surface so that it drains properly.
Backpacking/ backcountry experience is required, as the team will overnight (Friday and Saturday) on the trail so we can get to those way back, hard to reach places.
