Rattlesnake Trail Construction

The Nevada County Land Trust continues construction of the Rattlesnake Trail extension. Please consider helping out at these times:

10AM-1PM, Thursday, January 7
10AM-1PM, Saturday, January 9

Meet at the intersection of Lower Colfax and Rattlesnake Roads. According to Gene Haroldsen, "This week's construction will involve 1) finishing the trail between Lower Colfax and North Highland, and 2) grubbing and initial preparation of the trail alignment between Lower Colfax and the Colfax Highway.

Please bring work gloves and anything you may wish to drink or eat. We will have an assortment of Nevada County Land Trust hand tools available (i.e. Pulaskis, McClouds, loppers). If you have a shovel and / or a wheelbarrow, please bring them.

For planning purposes it would be helpful if you could let me know if you plan to participate on either or both days. Thank you for your interest and support of this joint Rattlesnake Neighborhood Association - Nevada County Land Trust project."

As background, this new trail will parrallel Rattlesnake Road from the original Rattlesnake Trail (at the Rattlesnake Ridge development) all the way to Highway 174, providing an off road alternative to riding alongside fast moving cars. A worthy project indeed.
