A free breakfast will be provided by Old New York Bagel Company before volunteers begin installing new soft surface signage, performing trail maintenance, and doing general clean up on these well used and much loved trails of the Mammoth Lakes Trail SystemFriends of the Inyo staff will provide an introduction to trail maintenance skills. Those interested in being regular members of the Mammoth Lakes Trail System stewardship team should be sure to show up August 13 to get trained up for future SOS projects. A free gourmet lunch – brought to you by Sunrise Rotary and Bleu Handcrafted Foods – will cap off your day of trail work, along with raffle prizes, free giveaways, and the very special $250 gift certificate at Kittredge Sports in honor of former Town Council Member and original founding member of MLTPA Skip Harvey who had a passion for the Uptown/Downtown and Mountain View trails. All ages and abilities are welcome, and we love to see families and clubs. Please arrive dressed for trail work (long pants, sun protection, sturdy close-toed shoes), and don’t worry if you can’t make it quite at 8:30; we can check you in and send you off to a task in progress just about anytime before 10:30 a.m. Trail Days are made possible by the Town of Mammoth Lakes, the Inyo National Forest, Mammoth Lakes Recreation, and Mammoth’s own Measure R!
