Participant Information

Upgrades to the BCMC's Watersprite Lake Trail Continue! (Now that the smoke and weather is better).

The Watersprite Lake Trail gets better and better, but as always, there is work to do.  We will have two brush cutter operators for this noisy trip of destruction.

Update: Members of the Internet Hiking Group Chasing Sunrise will be joining and assisting the BCMC on this trip.

Volunteers will be performing the following tasks:

1) Install official aluminum Trail signs made and donated by MFLNRO

2) Repair failing gabion on lower Demon Creek Bridge with car jack (KM .6)

3) Clear the S1 spur of new growth (KM 3.2 - 4.1)

4) Clearing work at the "prow" lookout area/trail (KM 4.7)



This trip will be the fifth in a series of major trail upgrades and construction trips dedicated to BCMC maintained Trails.  Come join us and help make this worthy project come to life and help upgrade the middle to upper section of the new trail!

Section 57 authorization has been granted for this project.  Maximum participants Unlimited!

Note:  This will be a long day due to the upper party working at the upper reaches of the trail.  You can choose the length of your day depending on which zone you choose to volunteer at.
