Trailwork on Smokejumper’s Trail
When: Saturday, November 4, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.; please come for as much or as little time as you can.
Where/Directions: Meet at the top of the Skyline Trail; Two access options (please note: both options require a bit of planning to get to the work site):
- Option 1: From the Skyridge Neighborhood, head up Skyline to the top, where you’ll see trail flags heading north to the work site. To get to Skyline: Take Florida road north to College Drive, head up to the Skyridge Neighborhood, turning left onto Jenkins Ranch Road. Drive down the road to the end where there is a ten spot parking lot and hike or ride to the top. It takes 45 minutes to walk up Skyline and another 10 minutes from the intersection of Skyline and Smokejumper’s to the work site
- Option 2: Park at the Horse Gulch trailhead and ride up Horse Gulch road to the Sugar Trailhead (the Trails 2000 truck will be parked there, the trail has a large rock cairn); ride up Sugar to the flagged trail on your right to the end where it intersects with Smokejumper’s and Skyline. Head north on Smokejumper’s for 10 minutes and you’ll see the crew.
What to wear to Trailwork: Volunteers should wear closed toe shoes or boots, long pants, shirt (long or short sleeved), sun hat, sunscreen, and bring a water bottle and rain jacket (optional). Trails 2000 will provide all tools, instruction, water and snacks.
