The Prescott National Forest and Expeditions West are sponsoring a trail rehabilitation project on Martin Canyon/Smiley Rock trail. Due to significant off trail damage done to a stock tank and hill side, Smiley Rock trail is in danger of closure. We need a good turnout to provide the physical labor to build water bars and rehab the hill climb. The USFS will provide some the materials and tools necessary, and we will working under the direction of PNF Trails/Motorized Recreation Ranger Ron Rodgers. Time permitting we will also block off illegal trail access points and give the trail a good cleaning as well.
If you can bring a pick, shovel, hoe, rock bar/digging bar or rake, please do so!
We need 30 or 40 people to bring work gloves and be prepared for a good day of hard work!
A huge thanks to Mark (crawler#976) for working with the Prescott National Forest in coordinating this trail rehab effort. We would love to see as many ExPo members from northern/central AZ as possible at weekend! Please post up here if you plan on helping out.
