V-O-Cal Trail Days

We will make much needed improvements to the existing Sanborn Trail.  The work will involve building steps and small retaining walls using rocks sourced on site, making minor reroutes to the trail alignment, widening the tread where needed, and obliterating a well-established social trail.  Center Camp will be located at the end of the walk-in campground about 1/2 mile up a paved road from the parking lot.  There won't be a gear shuttle, so pack accordingly if you're planning to camp overnight.

How to sign up

Volunteers must be age 14 or older. Volunteers under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult. 

Please sign up for every option that applies to you, HERE. Options are presented by days: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. It is important to sign up for each day you plan to volunteer.  

COVID Precautions:   V-O-Cal puts safety first.  Please register only if you are vaccinated. Protocols will be used in connection with food preparation and service (kitchen crew will mask in confined areas and during food service), and social distancing in outdoor areas will be requested. 

What comes next?

After you register, updates will be communicated to you largely through this Web site.  Before the project we will publish a Fact Sheet that should tell you everything you need to know about the project weekend.

You will be required to complete a waiver form (included with the Fact Sheet) in order to participate. To speed up check-in on the project weekend, we recommend you print out and complete the waiver form at home and bring it with you.
