Project Description

Construction project! Volunteers will build a turnpike just 1/4 mile from the Cabin Creek Forest Service Cabin. Turnpikes elevate the trail over wet ground in hopes to keep your boots dry as you hike through a boggy spot. The work done here will help hikers and pack animals keep their feet dry and give them sound footing for years to come. The group will be using the cabin for cooking and storage and will sleep out under the stars in tents.
