Work Day – Oct. 8th

We are asking for volunteers Sunday (no hunters in the woods) Oct 8th – 8am at intersection of plantation trail and the siglervillle millhiem pike to finish the the middle section of the sand mountain shale trail, that was not finished from the previous work day on Sept. 25th

We are hoping for one or two atvs with box rakes or a harrow to work with volunteers with shovels and hand rakes to finish up this years post event trail maintenance!

We are hoping for a half day of work and gladly cooler weather.

If no atvs are available we can try a tractor with a rake.

Thanks I look forward to the response.

If you have questions please email us at

Work Day – Sat. Sept. 23

DCNR has reviewed the trail after our event and has the following requests for our immediate attention.

Shale Trail –  work party on Saturday Sept 23rd.  Skid loaders will be required to level the trail in preparation for the upcoming snowmobile season. Public use and our event has created berms that need to be leveled.  PaTRA is looking for volunteers for that weekend to help do this maintenance.

8:00 A.M. —- We will be meeting at the Sand Mtn road Parking lot.

Bring rakes, shovels, work boots and gloves. We will be leveling off the berms on the shale trail and dressing any areas that need attention after the skid steer has gone through.

Bring water and bug spray as it looks like it will be a hot day.

We will work into the afternoon with a quitting time around 3:00 or whenever everyone has had enough.

If you are interested in helping please put your name on the roster by clicking the link below.
