Rapid Response Volunteer Event — Haul Materials To Project Site
March 30, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
The Superior Hiking Trail Association has a narrow weather window to haul supplies in to fix an infamous mud pit between Crosby Manitou State Park and the Caribou River State Wayside. Due to this narrow window of opportunity, SHTA is seeking 5-10 volunteers for this short-notice project.
What: Help haul materials over snow from a forest road to the Superior Hiking Trail. Materials have been hauled to within roughly 1000 feet from the SHT, and they need to be carried to the Trail through the woods, where we hope to have a narrow path cleared. Volunteers will need to be prepared to walk 3 miles round-trip along a forest road to reach the site.
When: Saturday, March 30th. Volunteers will meet at 9:00 at the Tettegouche State Park Visitor Center. We will aim to be back at the Visitor Center by 4:30.
Bring: Traction devices (cleats, yak trax, etc.) may be needed for walking up the road, snowshoes will be needed for hauling materials to the Trail, proper clothing (think layers), ample food, including lots of snacks, and lots of water. There will be no ability to fill up water throughout the day.
If you have them, PLEASE bring a sled made for hauling, not sledding, and straps or rope to secure loads.
