Driving Directions: The Stokes State Forest headquarters parking lot. Get yourself to Branchville/Culvers Gap on Rt. 206. From the south: 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. The Stokes State Forest headquarters is on Rt. 206 in Branchville, about 1/2 mile beyond the turnoff to Upper North Shore Road/Sunrise Mountain Road/the AT parking lot. Continue on Rt. 206 past that turn-off. The driveway to the park, with a large sign, will be on the right in approximately 1/2 mile.
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.)
