After snow canceled this past Saturday’s trail work at Belle Isle for the volunteer group Richmond MORE, but they will be back out there this Saturday at 9 a.m.:
This Saturday 1-15-11 we will once again be working over on Belle Isle. We have some bench cutting and other trail work to do on the trail that takes you from the service road near the hydro plant back around to the lost garden. Nathan and the gang have put in a pretty impressive rock retaining wall that is worth your trip out to see it while lending a hand.
When: 1-15-11 Saturday @ 9am
Where: The easiest thing to do is park in the Tredegar street parking lot (the lot commonly used for Belle Isle/Browns Island events. Underneath the train tracks near Tredegar Iron Works) and cross the concrete footbridge to gain access to Belle Isle. Once on Belle Isle follow the paved pathway towards the back of the island to the wooden access bridge. You can also park on 21st St. and ride your bike over to come in the back side.
Bring: Same as always; gloves, comfortable shoes or work boots, water, a snack and a smile.
