Help Build A Trail This Weekend

Your help is needed- to finish building a bike trail on Canfield Mountain. Volunteers will get together this Saturday, April 24 and Sunday, April 25 at 8:30 a.m. at 2305 E. Mountain Vista Drive to spend the day trail building.

The Canfield Mountain Trail Building Project was started three years ago by a Boy Scout as his Eagle Scout project. Future hiking trails were planned on the city-owned portion of Canfield Mountain and the brush was cleared for construction. The following two summers saw several more scout projects, and citizen groups, service organizations, and church groups come together to construct a total of one mile of trail to the park.

There is approximately half a mile of trail left to build. Water will be provided and volunteers are bringing hot dogs and buns for lunch barbecues. Volunteers are asked to bring a Pulaski, Macleod, or a hard rake, but tools will be provided for those who don't have their own.

For more information, contact Monte McCully, Trails Coordinator, at 208-292-5766.
