TVTAP Volunteer Trail Day this Saturday

June 8, 2011
1st Trail Day this Saturday

Dear Members and Friends of Teton Valley Trails and Pathways,

Our First Volunteer Trail Day of 2011 is here!

Please join us this Saturday, June 11th, for our first volunteer trail day of the summer. We will be working hard to complete a new trail just east of Victor.  We think this will be a great addition to the south end of the valley and a trail that can be used by all levels of bikers, hikers, runners, etc.  This is a designated non-motorized trail, approved by the USDA Forest Service in 2002.

When: Meet at the Driggs Forest Service Office at 9am.*

*If you live in Victor, or are coming from IF or Jackson you can join us at the trail head at 9:20.

**We will hold our raffle at the Trail Head so everyone has a chance to win some Tram Bars, Mountain Khaki Pants, and Free Coffee from the Sundog Cafe**

The trail head is located directly across the street from Mike Harris east of Victor on highway 33.

You can park on the North side of the Hwy 33 or in the Mike Harris parking area and walk over to the trail head.

We will be working on the trail until around 4pm.  Please remember to bring gloves, water, lunch, sunscreen, hat, and clothes for rainy weather.  We recommend long pants and long sleeve shirts and sandals or open toed shoes are not allowed while working on the trail.  The forest service will supply all the tools and safety instructions prior to going out on the trail.

Our end of day thank you party will be held at Grand Teton Brewing in Victor starting right after the trail work ends.  TVTAP is sponsoring the food and Grand Teton Brewing is supplying free beer to all volunteers!

Don’t forget that if you want the Upgrade from Grand Targhee you have to attend all three days and there are no make ups.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call: 208.201.1622
