We will continue work on a new MST trail section on the Hines Chapel property. We will be working on the trail from the Reedy Fork Parkway (future trailhead along Reedy Fork Pkwy). We will be doing some of the following in building a new trail – removing debris from the trail corridor, removing dead trees (done by Certified Sawyers), removing small trees, grubbing (removing roots and tree stumps), and creating a trail tread.

Please let me know if you plan to attend by Tuesday 11/8/2022.  I use the information to plan the workday.
