Buttermilk Trail staircase/ramp area to get re-route

Snow-covered staircase and bike ramp on the Buttermilk TrailVolunteer with Richmond MORE Saturday on the Buttermilk Trail:

This Saturday we will be meeting at Reedy Creek at 9am again and continuing work on the Buttermilk East re-route. Please park at Reedy Creek and head along the trail to the Red Clay Hill. For those of you not familiar with the “Red Clay Hill” section this is the section of trail that also has the small pedestrian staircase and wooden ramp with the bricks in the center. The guys will be working on a short re-route in that are to help reduce some erosion problems. Nathan expects that the re-route will take upwards of 3-4 Saturdays’ worth of trail work. We can shorten that time frame with more volunteers and hands in the mix.
What: Buttermilk East Re-Route work part 2.
When: Saturday 3-19-11 starting at 9am ending..? Come out for as long as you like.
Where: Park in the Reedy Creek parking lot just off of Riverside Drive and Nathan will divide up the groups in the morning. If you like to sleep in a bit then go ahead and park at Reedy and walk West along Buttermilk East (Towards the Nickel Bridge/Dog Park) and come on over to “Red Clay Hill” to catch up with the crew.
Bring: Gloves, work boots or shoes, water or coffee (if that’s your thing), a small snack to keep the blood sugar in check and an open mind.

  1. Just to clear things up, as far as I know, the staircase and ramp aren’t being rerouted. It’s the access trail from Buttermilk to 42nd street that’s being rerouted. Currently the trail leads straight down hill and is rather washed out. The new trail will curve up the hill and be a longer, but more sustainable climb.
