High Rockies Trail
July 17 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
We're getting close to finishing this project...but we have a few more days of work to get there. So come help fine-tune some of the High Rockies Trail between Driftwood and the Three Sisters Dam. Some of the sections are rocky and need material to smooth the tread.
Here's a good idea...volunteer on this project and stay at the Spray Lakes West Campground! You'll only have a 5-minute walk from your campsite to the work site.
Dates: July 13, 14, 15, 17
Meeting time: 9:00am (9am –3pm)
Meeting location: Three Sister Dam
Number of people: 12/day
What to expect: The level of effort will be moderate to heavy and include filling wheelbarrows with gravel and racking out the material to smooth the trail in rocky sections. We will have 2 gas powered wheelbarrows and will also need people to haul (a few) wheelbarrows with material. We'll rotate jobs, so don't expect to wheelbarrow until your arms want to fall off!
What to bring: You'll need to wear hiking boots and bring work gloves (Friends of Kananaskis work gloves will be available), rain gear (hopefully not needed), along with your lunch, water, sunscreen, bug spray, bear spray, and other personal gear. All of the tools and equipment will be supplied.
Volunteer Agreement Form: All volunteers need to fill out this Friends Agreement Form.
The form can be filled out once, and valid for the entire season by filling out the 'Termination of Agreement' section at the bottom of the form and adding date 'December 31, 2017'. To accelerate the paperwork process, print and fill out this form prior to the trail care day. Please present your completed form to the Friends of KC Crew Leader.
Note: Should weather not cooperate and we need to cancel, we will notify you by email around 12pm the day before the event.
Sign up closes at 12pm on the day before the event.
