Trail Workshop: Sept. 17
The Cobequid Eco-Trails Society (CE-TS), assisted by Hike NS, will host a trail bridge replacement event on Saturday, September 17
(rain date of Sept. 18) from 10 am to 4 pm on the Gully Lake Trail system in Earltown. Those who volunteer or work to build or maintain trails are invited to attend and do some hands-on learning. Part of the bridge over the Salmon River on the Portage Trail will be torn out and new materials installed. There will be a “show and tell” portion of the day where visiting trail builders can ask about how work was done on the Gully Lake trails, get tips and share ideas.
The experience involves being able to carry in wood and other materials, hammering in nails and taking instruction from the organizers. There is a 0.5 km hike to the work site. Participants should bring sturdy footwear, dress in layers, bring their own work gloves and hammer (if you have one) and water bottle. A barbecue lunch, snacks and water will be provided (if you have special dietary needs, please bring what you need). Participants will be required to sign a waiver. There will be a prize draw for two Hike NS t-shirts and two one-year Hike NS group memberships.
This event is offered in partnership with Cobequid Eco-Trails Society

This event is free for community trail groups, First Nations and municipalities. Registration is required in advance.
