3/29: Allamuchy Trail Maintenance


A strong 7

We wanted to drop a quick reminder for this Saturdays TM at Allamuchy. We will be
working in the North section of the Park this month. Meeting at the Tranquility
trail Head off Rt 517.

Directions from Rt 80 (Exit 19) are as follows - take Rt 517 north for approx 1.5
miles. Make a right turn on to a dirt road, note there is not a sign for this road
and it comes up quick. If you see the Tranquility Farm Stand you passed the road.
You can either turn around or head up Rt 517 until you see the sign for Pub Rt 517,
make the right turn and go past the pub and up the dirt road. This will take you to
the trail head. If anyone needs additional details, please do not hesitate to reach
out to us.

We would like to put in approx. 4 to 5 hrs of work starting at 8:30. We will be
riding/walking to the work site, depending on the weather. We will be working on
armoring (lining with rock) a section of trail so bring your favorite gloves (we
will bring extra for those without). Depending on time, we may work on a short
bypass on another section of trail. We should have enough tools for everyone. The
event will be rain or shine (barring a torrential downpour), please dress
accordingly. We would recommend that each person wears comfortable shoes/boots (in
the event we hike in) and water. We will bring bagels to snack on. Everyone will
need to complete an NJDEP Volunteer In Parks (VIPs) form, which we will provide that

The last thing we will ask is if you plan on attending, please send me a quick
e-mail letting us know, this will help with planning. Also if you would like to
bring someone along, please do so. Thanks to everyone for showing interest in in
helping out!
