MRWA is hiring a trail crew to work on our single track trail network. We are working to connect the Norrawarren trails to the “Fight trails” off of the Governor’s Brook subdivision. As the trail gets longer so does the walk into the worksite. This means we get less build time per weekly volunteer build session. We’re hiring a trail crew to supplement our volunteer effort and keep the project (and trails) progressing this summer and fall. We are hiring trail building crew members and supervisors. The job descriptions and details of how to apply can be found here:

The 2018 trail building season has started. Volunteers were out today building trail in the McIntosh Run Singletrack Trail System. The trail plan for 2018 is ambitious and we’re excited to have started. If you’re interested in lending a hand (and back) we’d love to have you. You can join our volunteer mailing list here, follow us on Facebook, or check our calendar to find out about the next scheduled build. If you have a group who would like to come out for a special group build please contact us and we’ll try and make it happen.
We are hoping to schedule regular weekly build days soon and will post them when known.
We had a busy and productive fall in the McIntosh Run. Most Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons and the odd weeknight this fall you’d have found a crew of trail builders somewhere in the McIntosh Run Watershed digging dirt, moving rocks, or “grubbing” new trail. […]
