    • Running Trails Center, 7575 North Picnic Lane, Houston, TX 77007
    The Trail Tamers are partnering with the Memorial Park Conservancy of Houston to teach an introductory class on trail maintenance, developed by the Pacific Crest Trail Association and U.S. Forest Service Trails Specialist John Schubert) is for people new to trail work who want an overview. 

    One quarter of the class covers “how trails work,” i.e. basic trail design concepts; one quarter covers trail work safety protocols; one quarter covers hands-on brushing and hand-saw clearing; and one quarter covers hands-on drainage cleaning. This sampler class does not prepare students to work independently. Instead, students will understand a range of trail work tasks and have a good idea of what they want to do under a crew leader, or what class they want to take next.

    Students need to wear appropriate work clothes, boots and bring a pair of gloves because we plan on hiking and doing some brushing and light trail work.

    The Trail Tamers will hold a work project in the celebration of the life of our crew leader Ray Fore.  Details are being worked out; however, you can expect that we will work hard and then have a great time around the camp-fire in celebration of Ray.

    • Replace about 250 feet old metal handrail with treated lumber. There are several sections where the pipe is missing. The posts will need to be trimmed to the correct height.
    • Completely rebuild the observation deck with the two benches including 40 feet of walkway adjacent to the deck.
    • Rehab about 200 feet on the newer walkway. Also install posts for a new handrail.
    • Paint the bridge
