If you’re an avid hiker or just someone who thinks Juneau’s trails are important, you can express your love for Juneau’s trails this Saturday.
The City and Borough of Juneau Parks and Recreation Department is partnering with Trail Mix, Inc. and the Tongass Chapter of Trout Unlimited #581 to work on the Montana Creek Trail and is inviting people to join this Saturday — which is National Trails Day. They need volunteers to move, spread and compact gravel on the trail as workers are rerouting the trail from the steep, eroded bank of the creek.
Attendees are asked to meet at the Dimond Park Field House parking lot at 8:30 a.m. Saturday. Work will begin at the trailhead at 9 a.m. and end at 1 p.m., with snacks afterward. People should wear suitable outdoor clothing, sturdy boots and gloves, and should bring water and snacks.
Trail Mix, a nonprofit that works to improve and protect trails in the area, will provide all of the tools. All ages are welcome, but attendees are asked to leave their dogs at home.
