Project on the Raspberry Mountain segment of Ring the Peak
Saturday, June 27
Friends of the Peak built this trail in 2003 and 2004. Two switchbacks have damage from use and another section has some erosion. Volunteers will address these problems. The hike in is about 1/4 mile for the farthest area.
Volunteers meet at the trailhead for the Raspberry Mountain segment of the Ring, on the Crags Road, Forest Service road 383, at 8 a.m. Work ends about 3:30 p.m. The Crags Road has many dispersed campsites in national forest. Volunteers may camp on their own Friday evening if they'd like. Those choosing to camp must provide their own gear and food.
Those who wish to carpool should meet at 6:45 at the parking area behind the statue of The Prospector at the northwest corner of U.S. 24 and 21st Street and leave by 7:00 a.m.
As with most trail projects, bring water, lunch, snacks, work gloves, sunscreen, sturdy footwear, rain gear, clothing layers, and anything else you would commonly bring on a hike.
