Laurel Mt trail maintenance

Laurel Mountain workday volunteers

Special thanks to the PACCSA volunteers who helped out at the final Laurel Mountain Volunteer Group work day of 2018!  Our group armored and repaired erosion on the lower portion of Towhee, which will improve PACCSA's ability to groom that section of trail this winter.  Afterwards, the DCNR staff provided us with a great picnic where we got to catch up with friends from the Laurel Mountain Ski Patrol, as well as the other groups who helped out.
