East Fork Trailhead got some loving attention last month, but still needs a good spring painting to finish the job!

When: Saturday, April 13
Time: 9 am
Where: East Fork Trailhead

We will meet at 9am at East Fork Trailhead and continue re-painting all the pipes and cables (in TTPA-white). We’re about 1/3 of the way done, so the end is in sight. We’ll provide the paint, brushes, and rubber gloves, you provide the energy! Do wear old clothes, suitable to be spattered with white paint.

We’ll also make a stab at picking up trash along Skyline Drive from the trailhead, time permitting. See you there!
