This is the kick-off for our new club volunteer project,and we'd like to have as many of you hikers as possible to get it started with a bang. We'll be trimming brush on the Black Mesa Trail in the Superstitions, where we often hike.

The trail originates two miles miles from First Water Trailhead and extends for three miles. We'll be trimming brush and cacti back from the trail using tools provided by the forest service. The event will start at 8am at First Water Trailhead, where there will be an orientation and sign in.

From there we will divide into several groups based on desired hiking length (5 to 9 miles) and hike to Black Mesa Trail, where we will begin the trail maintenance. We'll return to First Water by 2pm for sign-out, and to enjoy a lunch of sandwiches and drinks provided by the club.

Some things you will need to work in: long sleeve shirt, long pants, sturdy gloves and a hat. Also bring water and snacks to enjoy while working.
