Trail Maintenance Day, Sat. July 6

Lake overview
The Chippewa Moraine Segment will be the target for the Saturday, July 6th, trail maintenance day. Focus will include the Dumke Lake view-shed and the trail reroute on Horseshoe Lake west of Town Line Rd. We will clear brush from the view-shed, and repair trail damage on the reroute.

Bring water and snacks. Wear long sleeves, pants, boots, work gloves, and socks you can tuck your pants legs into. Ticks are out there. Mosquitos abound, so a head net is highly recommended. There is no third Saturday maintenance day in July, so this is it.

We hope to see you there. If you are planning to attend the workday, please email Jerry Sazama ( to register. The crew will meet at 8:00 am. at the Obey Center. It is important that you register for the event because we need a head count to organize our groups and to determine the number and kinds of tools that we need to bring.

NOTE: If you are not already on our trail crew (with a Volunteer Agreement-see below), consider joining our trail crew this year. There is something special about building and maintaining the trail. You will never look at the trail with the same eyes again after participating in a work project and learning what it takes to keep our trails in top condition.
