August 23rd: Trail Building and Ride

Meet at the Echo Valley Lot in the forest.

Please try to arrive between 7:30 and 7:45 so that we can leave promptly for the trek into the woods.


From Exit 10 I-84
Turn Left if coming from the south/Turn right if coming from the north.Head west on US-6 [Church Hill Rd], for approximately 0.6 mi. You will pass under a railroad bridge and when you see Starbucks on your left there will be a right turn onto the Boulevard.

Turn right onto the Boulevard and stay on this road for 1.3 mi. When the road crosses under a highway bridge, it becomes Hanover Rd. Take Hanover Rd for a half mile and Echo Valley Rd will be the first road on your right. Turn onto Echo Valley Road and follow for 0.9 miles.
You will come up to a fork in the road and stay to the left. Continue for a few yards until the asphalt ends and a dirt road begins. Do not turn left onto Sanford Road, there is a blue sign that says scenic road - that is the wrong direction.

Continue up the dirt road, passing a yellow house on your left and then a red barn and then you will come to the parking lot.
Please ensure that you dress appropriately and wear boots or heavy duty shoes. Please bring work gloves, water and bug repellent.
A ride will follow.

If you come late, take the blue trail to the ROW (right of way - old road lined with stone walls) and follow the Gussy Trail till you find us. I want to do benching on the re-routed section, so we'll be half way up the trail.

Frame of reference: After the third stream crossing, the long climb up the side of the hill.
