Mt. Waterman Trail Maintenance
This is a great opportunity to combine your love of the outdoors with the gratification of making a significant contribution to the environment.
We will hike from Buckhorn Trailhead to work on trails inside of San Gabriel Wilderness. Plan is to remove logs from trail and improve tread. Hike will be about 7-8 miles round trip with 1400′ gain.
No experience is necessary and we will provide tools, hard hats, gloves. This is a good opportunity to learn cross-cut saw skills. We emphasize technique rather than brute strength to clear downfalls. See how it is done.
Bring plenty of water and your lunch. Forest Service requires us to wear long sleeves, pants, sturdy footwear (boots highly recommended) and eye protection (sunglasses OK). Check weather conditions for mountains (6000′ to 7000′) for proper clothing.
Cell phone is 562-286-3874.
Trail statistics are approximate. For safety purposes always assume they are underestimated. But don’t be disappointed if they are overestimated. Bring more water and snacks than you think you’ll need.
Trail descriptions are based on previous hikes. Current conditions are unknown until arrival. Expect the unexpected and plan accordingly.
