We'll be working at the Gus Fruh access from 8:00 AM until noon. We'll be resurfacing the entire switchback entry trail with decomposed granite and StaLok. It needed work before the recent rains and it needs it worse now. We've done repair work on various sections over the years, but we haven't redone the entire trail since 2005. It's a big job and we'll need all the help we can get!
Those of you who've helped us do this kind of work before know that we usually mix the DG and StaLok resin on site. Now we can buy it already mixed! That will speed things up considerably, but we'll still need lots of folks to help get a small mountain of material down the trail, spread, and pack it.
We'll have some other tasks available (invasives removal, trash pickup, etc.) for those who can't do trail repair, but our focus will be on getting the trail work completed. Experienced shovelers, rakers, packers, and wheelbarrow drivers preferred, but we're willing to train. Breakfast tacos will be provided!
SIgnup will be in early October via the Austin Parks Foundation's GivePulse website. We'll send out a reminder then.
