Rebuilding Robbies’ (1 of 2) 2018

Help us fix one of the worst sections of trail in the forest, Robbie’s challenge runs through the draw of a large pond: We can rebuild him though!

HAFTA with support from Region of Halton will be cleaning up the old rotten decking currently in place, covering over the old trail, cutting a reroute (Approx 150meters) on slightly higher ground, constructing 8 meters of footbridge to cross the seasonal channel and armouring that one sharp corner that is always muddy (too small for a footbridge). We’ll also be smoothing out much of the high-ground through this low area as it has a few rocky outcroppings.

Weather permitting this rebuild will take two days, depending on attendance and weather. Tools involved will be cordless drills with #2 Robertson bits, gloves and glasses. HAFTA should have enough extractigators and Pulaski to clear the new trail and set the bridge footings on rock. You are free to bring your own rock bars and pulaskis. If you have a rake, those are always handy, but most of the work is just picking stuff up and putting it down. Bring study footwear, ground may be slippery and we will be carrying rocks.
