Tuesday Trail Nights are Back!

tuesdaytrailnights

Make Tuesday night your Boone United Trail night.  Tuesday Trail Nights are weekly  from 5pm- dark This is a great way to get in some post-work exercise (or get out some post work aggression), meet some like-minded folks, and make this trail a reality for our community.

Logistics:

Meet us on the trail, located behind Boone United Methodist Church in the back lot near the wood cutting area. Look for the small bridge crossing the creek. Sign the waiver and head up the trail to find us.

To Bring:

Bring your own water, and consider bringing a snack or dinner. Wear close toed shoes and consider wearing pants. We’ll provide tools and gloves, but extra loppers, and pick axes are always helpful. We also have a need for volunteers who are experienced with chainsaws to help clear downed trees.

Weather note: We will work in light rain and scattered showers, not heavy rain or lightning.
