Project Description

This winter was hard on the much-loved Baker Lake Trail. Now that we have cleared the majority of the trees that fell across the trail, we’ll work to restore the tread and drainage features. We’ll be using hand tools to reshape the walking surface, clean and restore drains and culverts to working order and brush back the fast-growing vegetation. 

Participants will meet at the Baker Lake Trailhead and work north. They must have a daypack, lunch, water, long pants, long sleeves and boots.

We will meet at the Baker Lake Trailhead at 9:00am, have a quick safety chat and then get to work clearing the trail of logs both large and small. Take lunch on the banks of beautiful Baker Lake and then work until about 3:00pm.

This event is great for both seasoned trail stewards and folks with minimal experience!
