Spend National Public Lands Day in the higher elevations of Mt. Charleston caring for the Mt.Charleston National Recreation Trail (NRT).
Formerly known as the South Loop, the Mt.Charleston NRT has been closed to the public since last summer's Carpenter 1 fire. The forests and meadows on the ridge above Kyle Canyon were burned in a mosaic pattern. Coupled with subsequent flooding, hazards intensified in the area. The US Forest Service is working to reopen this trailhead as soon as they can. In the meantime the trail needs our attention!
Friends of Nevada Wilderness is partnering with the US Forest Service and volunteers to restore the lower portions of the trail. Volunteers 16 and older will learn trail maintenance techniques through hands on practice. We are excited to do our part in helping this trail recover.
Volunteers are asked to wear long pants, long sleeves, sturdy shoes/boots and sunscreen and bring a lunch, a water bottle to refill and snacks. Please bring whatever else you may need to be comfortable on the trail for the day. Details of the event will be provided the week of the event to those who have RSVPed.
If you have questions or concerns about the event please reach out to the contact person listed below.
