Greensboro & Eastern Guilford Task Force Workday
May 13, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
We made a lot of progress on trail improvements on the Laurel Bluff Trail on our workdays in April:
Extension of a puncheon and the addition of a 2nd puncheon to improve a wet area of the trail near Marker 122
Building a reroute to replace a steep (fall-line) section- The reroute includes three switchbacks and is before Marker 120
We will continue doing trail maintenance / improvements on the Laurel Bluff Trail. We may also work on another one of the trails we maintain depending on the number of volunteers planning to participate on the workday. As is usually the case the weather condition leading up to and expected on 5/13/23 may impact what task we work on.
Please let me know if you plan to attend by Tuesday 5/9/2023. I use the information to plan the workday and plan for biscuits.
