We have partnered with the Forest Service to partake in trail maintenance and restoration of the Broads Fork Trail in Big Cottonwood Canyon on 9/29. This work will involve lopping tree branches and brush that are over hanging the trail, clearing gravel out of existing check dams and water bars, closing user-made trails and keep the environment healthy over all.
This project is important because it will prevent trail erosion and will improve existing trails for hikers. It will also limit the spread of invasive species through user made trail closures, and will help to prevent hikers from mistakenly go off trail.
By partaking in this opportunity, you are helping to ensure that this trail can be used continuously by hikers for years to come. Additionally you will be giving back to the mountains that we all enjoy so much and use so frequently, and will be helping to improving the environment of the Wasatch.
When: Saturday, September 29 8:30 a.m to 3:00 p.m
Where: Broads Fork drainage, Big Cottonwood Canyon
Meeting location: Big Cottonwood Canyon Park n Ride (Look for SOC banner) at 8:30 a.m
Volunteers should bring a substantial amount of water, a snack and should wear closed toe shoes with good tread, pants or shorts and a hat to protect from the sun.
