Plenty to do and as a result, the trail work will be varied and happen regardless of the weather. We plan to use as much of the natural resources on hand (rocks, dirt, trees) for building materials. Physical activity will include: Hauling rocks, dirt, leaves, building retaining walls, removing/pruning vegetation, leveling trails, marking trails. Work crews will be directed Western MA Climbing Coalition or another representative on the day of the event. We can expect to be working in two groups of four each with a crew leader.
