Requirements & Documents
Be prepared for the conditions and a good hike. In cooler weather, dress in multiple thin layers to better regulate your temperature. When it is dry, we usually do a group ride after the trail work is done (and sometimes one before as well). So bring your bike gear. We supply you with all hand tools needed. Remember to not over-exert yourself in extreme heat, use tools safely, and only use tools you are comfortable with. One thing to be careful of is poison ivy, though simple precautions will protect you most of the time.
The important stuff:
Leather work gloves
Long pants (Protection from ticks)
Hat (Protection from branch tips and thorns)
Protective eyewear (Protection from branch tips and thorns)
Hydration pack (water bottles get lost)
Hooded raincoat (if the forecast dictates)
