Friday, Sept 2nd – Hobart Link Trail Workday
From Bill the Ranger:
This trail will be a beautiful and fun multi use but mostly mtn biking alternative to the steep, hot, dusty Sunflower Hill Rd. The trail is close to half done and we are excited to be building the first trail in the park primarily designed for biking so please join us!

Time: 8am – 3pm

Clothing/misc: long pants, work shirt, hat, water, lunch, sun lotion, boots

Tools/supervision: Parks will provide

Transportation: you may drive your 4×4 or team up with another volunteer

Exit time: we should be finishing up at roughly 3-3:30pm and then caravanning out.

And on the following day…
