No experience is needed because we have the right job for you and the experienced leaders to train you. Each day there are several projects to choose from. They range from simple (clearing brush from the trails, cleaning the drainages, repairing drainage features or steps on the trails, or painting blazes) to complex (bridges or rock stair construction). All abilities and efforts are welcome and appreciated. Trail work hours are from 9am to 4pm on Saturday and 9am to 12pm on Sunday. Arrival at AMC Cardigan Lodge can be anytime after 2pm on Friday. All participants are expected to work until Sunday lunch. There is free time to relax, swim or play in the evenings, early mornings and Sunday afternoon. The weekend cost of $80 includes a light buffet dinner on Friday evening (served from 6:00 - 8:00 PM), lodging Friday; breakfast, trail lunch, dinner and lodging on Saturday; breakfast and buffet lunch on Sunday.
