The upcoming trail season is almost here, and Trail Mix plans look like this so far: Trail Mix will employ about 12 crew members this season which will form either two or three separate teams in the field. They will first focus on the three large bridges which will be installed on the Treadwell Ditch Maintenance Trail at Paris, Kowee and Eagle creeks. There are also plans to work on a connector trail from Auke Lake to the KAX trail along the Mendenhall River, the Horse Tram Trail out past Amalga Harbor and the Cross Admiralty Canoe Trail. In addition to this there is now a Volunteer Trail Maintenance Team which will focus on tread and small bridge improvements between the new major bridges on the Treadwell trail.
Please keep in mind two, important, upcoming dates. The next Trail Mix Board Meeting is Thursday, April 27th and that will also serve as our annual membership meeting so please consider coming to participate. We will elect officers for this next year and discuss plans for the season. Saturday, June 3rd, is National Trails Day and we will organize a volunteer effort that day on one of our local trails for the public. We hope you can help that day. More later after the snow clears and we know the location.
