Cannonsburg State Game Area Trailday 5-8-10

Spring 2010

Step 1 completed 4-30-10

Delivered and staged 2 TONS of Flag Stone at work area. A BIG THANKS to our new friends at the STONE ZONE for a generous deal. Check them out for your personal projects and let them know you heard it hear. Thanks to Mike F for helping.

Step 2
Spent Day 2 and 3 laying down armoring with Rick and Aaron. Thanks Guys!
Beware of soft sand on the down hill just after the Trail Work Ahead sign in section 3. (as we begin to back fill the old tread) Had a good day armoring with flag and field stone but not quite ready to open for riding. Sand will be going away soon.

Step 3
Brought in more field stone and created a XLG nick in front of the armored section with the Ditch Witch (I LOVE DITCH WITCHES!) to divert water down the hill vs down and under the armor.
Stay tuned for more updates and pics.

PS: Anyone interested in laying a final "Stone of your Own" (Your personal piece of History on your Heritage Trail) come out for the Trial Day this Saturday 5-8-10 at 9 AM. Bring work gloves/shoes etc, H2O and bug spray. FREE Lunch!
