This is the first Walk ’n Work hike of the trail season and setting our sites on sprucing up the Loop Trail 10: taking in the Northern section of Westwoods. This 3.0 mile loop crosses the great swamp on our 650ft plank walk, then traverses granite hilltops on the Yellow Circle trail. See https://guilfordlandtrust.org/wordpress/2017/03/loop-10-granite-loop for a parking map and a detailed loop description. As with last year’s Walk’n Work parties: no chainsaw or heavy equipment is allowed. Just wear comfortable shoes, a seasonable jacket and bring along a set of garden clippers. If you’re as interested in hiking as in trail work., please join us and spread the word to anyone you think will enjoy the same. We’ll meet at the Peddler’s Road to Westwoods at 10AM on the 5th. It’s a great way to begin the autumn!. [est 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 hours]
