Volunteers needed to help with trail work

Provided to the Tribune

The Carson Valley Trails Association is looking for volunteers to help with trail work days on the Fay-Luther and Genoa Trail systems.

Anyone interested in helping is welcome to participate. No previous trail-building experience is required. Volunteers must wear long pants, long-sleeved shirt, hiking boots, work gloves and sunglasses. Tools and hard hats are provided. Bring food and water.

Starting Tuesday, Fay-Luther Trail system work days will be every Sunday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Most of the work will consist of new trail construction of two short reroutes on the Jeffrey Pine Trail. This work is fairly easy and will fix drainage problems. Meet at the Fay-Luther Trailhead on Foothill Road.

Work on Genoa Trail system will connect and complete the Genoa Loop. Work days will be from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Meet at the end of Carson Street in Genoa. The Genoa Trail system work days are April 5, 7, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 20, 23, 16 and 28.

In addition, CVTA will help a local Boy Scout troop complete the 0.7-mile East Brockliss Loop near the Whit Hall Interpretive Center at The Nature Conservancy’s River Fork Ranch on April 21 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Trail work will include clearing brush and building two short boardwalks.
