Trail Maintenance on the Lucas Canyon Trail

Group: Sierra Club

When: Saturday, October 7, 7:30 am

Where: San Mateo Canyon Wilderness

Cost: Free


Sierra Club (Orange County Group, Sierra Sage Group, & San Gorgonio Chapter) volunteers, male and female, maintain trails in the San Mateo Canyon Wilderness. In October, we will work on both the Lucas Canyon trail and the access trail into lower Lucas Canyon. Considerable brushing is needed on both trails. The Lucas Canyon trail has some fallen trees and significant tread repair is needed at one location. No experience is needed, just a willingness to work, and tools are provided. Bring work gloves, sturdy boots, water, lunch. The hike could be up to 5 miles round trip with a 600′ elevation gain at the end of the day. We will meet at the south OC ride share at 7:30 am to car pool to the trail head. Those coming from Riverside should contact the leader for meeting time and location. Rain, excessive heat, or critical fire danger will cancel. Leader: John Kaiser ( Assistant: Rich Maxey
