Participant Information

The Watersprite Trail has become immensely popular and this work trip will provide critical upgrades needed for the trail and the general public.


We will once again be joined by enthusiastic volunteers from Chasing Sunrise for this important work trip.  So far we have over 25 confirmed participants from Chasing Sunrise joining us.

Volunteers will be performing the following tasks and can choose which work zone is best for them based on their skills and fitness (See Map Below):  Update:  We will travel as one giant mob of 35+ and work our way up the trail clearing any and all vegetation in our way.  We will also inspect and repair any infrastructure requiring attention.

Task 1/Work Zone 1: Brush out the massive amounts of bush on the S Line at work Zone 1
Task 2/Work Zone 2: Brush out and Grub the Upper Logging Road at the scenic Prow Lookout (Work Zone 2)
Task 3: Inspect, repair and add new stairs in connector trail.

Make sure to bring Rain Gear and Headlamps at this time of year as a precautionary measure.
