Volunteers Welcome at Bald Mountain Trail Improvement Project Day

baldmountaintopVolunteers are welcome to help the Bureau of Land Management improve single-track trails in the Bald Mountain Trail Network east of Susanville, in a project day set for Saturday, June 24th.

Volunteers will clear rocks and smooth out ruts and small gullies caused by winter storms.

Anyone interested should meet at 8:00a.m. at the fire station near the junction of Lassen County Road A-3 and Sunnyside Road north of Janesville. Those who arrive late can follow signs to the trailhead and hike to meet the work parties. The project concludes at 1:00p.m.

Volunteers should dress for working in the field and weather conditions, with lightweight long-sleeved shirts, long pants, sturdy footwear, sunscreen and gloves. They should bring lunch and plenty of water. The BLM will provide tools. Volunteers can also bring their own trail-building tools.

Horseback riders, hikers, trail runners and mountain bike riders use the routes in the Bald Mountain Trail network. Trail building began last year, with three volunteer workdays and work by Antelope Conservation Camp crews.

The BLM Eagle Lake Field Office is in the first phases of developing a looped trail network on the open hillsides. The trails offer gentle climbs leading to expansive views of the Honey Lake Valley and the northern end of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

For more information, telephone Bales at (530) 252-5311 or email [email protected].
