Tread improvement before and after photos.


Everyone is welcome to join - beginners and experts alike. Shoot us an email if you're interesting in coming out on this work trip!


The Halifax Trail leads up to popular viewpoints and sees heavy use, but some sections are in need of serious improvement. We'll be teaching all the basics of sidehill and tread work to change a sloped, uneven section into a pleasant walking experience with the magic of pick-mattocks, rock bars and hammers.


Bring: Sturdy shoes, water, lunch/snacks, and tough clothing appropriate for outdoor work (including gloves and safety glasses if you have them). Raingear and warm layers depending on forecast. Be prepared for some good walking and wholesome outdoor exercise!
