The Trail Tamers are returning to the Davis Mountains during the week of November 13th to assess the condition of the trails in the Buffalo Trails Scout Camp that were damaged by recent flooding.
Volunteers will conduct an assessment of the condition of the trails and develop a report identifying problem areas for repair.
Registration: Registration is open only to members of the Central Texas Trail Tamers.
Food and Accommodations: You will need to provide your own meals. Volunteers will have access to bunks, showers, and kitchens. There are tent platforms that could be used if anyone should desire to use them.
Fitness Level Description: This project is suitable for individuals in good physical condition. Volunteers must be able to hike 5-8 miles a day and be physically able to perform routine trail maintenance such as trimming brush, constructing creek crossings, moving rocks and repairing trail signs.
Equipment and Clothing: Participants are expected to furnish their own gear, including tent, sleeping bag, day pack, water bottles, personal mess kit, and some a container to use for packing their lunch. Work clothes should be practical and include long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and well-broken-in hiking boots. Most importantly, participants should bring good work gloves and safety glasses.
Cody Glover is the crew leader for the project.
