June 2: National Trails Day in the Lakes Basin


Sponsored by the Old New York Deli and Bagel Company

Project Description: Grub, brush and rock: Find out what that means on National Trails Day! Join us for the first Summer of Stewardship Trail Day event of 2012. June 2 is National Trails Day, and we'll be clearing the trails of the Mammoth Lakes Basin for early summer access. Volunteers will remove logs and debris from trails and pick up trash while learning trail maintenance skills from Inyo National Forest staff. Those interested in being regular members of the Mammoth Lakes Trail System volunteer trail crew should come on June 2 to get trained up for future SOS projects and other trail needs throughout the summer.

  • Where: Meet at Pokonobe Lodge on Lake Mary for a bagel breakfast, safety talk and work assignments. 
  • What: Head to a nearby Lakes Basin trail for a morning of maintenance and training, then back to Pokonobe for lunch and giveaways.
