Waiparous trail project - October 22nd
« on: August 20, 2016, 02:15:32 PM »
Hey everyone,

I am trying to arrange a day or two to do some bank stabilization around the new bridges being put in around Waiparous.

This will be done with the back country rehab program people and we are looking at the weekends in October.  If you are interested in taking part in this please post up what weekend will work best for you.

This will be the 4x4 groups first opportunity to do some work with this program so it would be nice to have a really strong turnout.


**UPDATE**

This is going ahead.  One day only.
Meet at the South Ghost staging area between 9-9:30AM.
Tools are not required but if you have a large hammer or some sort of a planters bar.

We have 2 bridges to Deck and willow sticks to plant on the banks. 

Post up to let me know if you are going to make it.

I'm interested for sure. Not sure what my schedule will be. I'll know more closer to October.
if we were smart with our money we wouldn't own Jeeps.
Here's your cup of STFU... ENJOY!

No it will be one weekend.  I would just like to pick one that we will get the biggest turnout on.

Is this bridge going to be for a truck trail?  The one shown on their site is a quad trail currently with winter only truck use.  Is it being changed to a truck trail?

Do you have a link for the new map?
Edited. Yes believe that is one of the trails that will be open to full size trucks year round.

Yes the large loop of the winter trails for trucks is going to be open to us year round.  Unless the federal government agrees to pay for about 5 bridges with are going to lose the small northern loop of the winter trails for good.

The bridges for this project are between points 139 & 141 from what I understand.
