Driving Directions: The Appalachian Trail parking area at Sunrise Mountain Road. Sunrise Mountain Road is a one-way road, which you must join at the Rt. 206 end. Get yourself to Culvers Gap on Rt. 206 (either take Rt. 206 North from I-80, or take Rt. 15 North from I-80 to Rt. 206 and continue north on Rt. 206). From Rt. 206 in Culvers Gap, turn right onto Upper North Shore Road (there will be a small sign for Sunrise Mountain), then, after approximately 1/4 mile turn left onto Sunrise Mountain Road (Sunrise Mountain Road is the first available left). Immediately turn left again onto the dirt driveway for the parking area.
For all work trips, bring your lunch, plenty of water, gloves and sturdy work shoes, and be prepared to get dirty. All tools, materials and training will be provided. Beginners are welcomed on all work trips.
All events begin at 9:00am. Please phone/email the leaders for meeting location and driving directions. There is usually a walk to the work site, so please be there on time (call the leaders’ cell phone if you are coming to an event and are running late). Rain cancels – if in doubt, call the leaders between 6:00 and 6:30 that morning.
Carpooling: if anyone is interested in carpooling (offering a ride or riding), please let the leaders know and we will try to arrange a shared ride. (Passengers please be prepared to contribute for gas.)
