Marin County Parks and One Tam Stewardship Team

Event Location: Meet at the Phyllis Ellman Trail head off Paradise Dr. in Corte Madera. 

Join Marin County Parks and One Tam in repairing and replacing a puncheon on the Phyllis Ellman Trail on Ring Mountain. Turnpikes are a trail structure that assists trail user in moving across sensitive areas while limiting their impact, especially in wet and riparian areas.  The morning will kick off with coffee, an introduction to Ring Mountain and an overview of the project before we get to work.  

Trail work involves hiking, moving supplies up and down trail as well as carrying tools and swinging tools. Please dress in close toed shoes, long pants and bring layers for the rapidly changing weather patterns on the slopes of the mountain. Light snacks will be provided but please supply your own lunch and bring water bottles.

In the event of heavy rain and/or high winds call (339) 927-4753 to find out about event status. In the event of cancellation, program will be rescheduled.
