Work Days

  • 2016 Trail work completed

    2016 Spring Shade Mountain crew

Turnout for PATRA work day June 25th 2016 had 19 hard core volunteers showing up at 9am & working until 1pm. Mike Pool & Steve Bottiger provided lunch & drinks. Trails were cleared of brush/logs & snags using 2 crews. The 3rd crew cleaned out 12 water bars and finished topping the diversions  with logs to prevent wheel spin from cutting through them on the old snowmobile trail.  Thanks to all.

  • Additional Trail work clearing – June 26th

  • A two man crew cleared Bull Hollow trail, Cold Spring Trail, and Horse Shoe Bend Trail of 4 large trees

  • Fall 2015 Trail work

  • Thanks to the guys for all the time spent , equipment , and money put back into the shale trail.  DCNR should be very pleased with PaTRA’s efforts to maintain this new section of trail.  Efforts like these are what keep trails available to Motorized recreation in State Forest lands.  Thanks again to all who donated their time and equipment.

Thank you all that came out on August 30th 2015 and helped with the work on Shade Mountain. I think we made some real progress in making DCNR happy and keeping that trail open and viable.

PaTRA members were out on the Shade Mountain Trail System and installed water breaks on the trail as recommend by DCNR.  With the help of an experienced operator on the track hoe we were able to complete all of the excavating on Saturday.  There will be a follow up work day in the near future to  install and stake logs at the water breaks to ensure they remain intact.
