If you can lift rocks, youre hired.
Cheakamus Challenge organizer Grant Lamont, in co-operation with WORCA, North Shore trail builder Ross Kirkwood and local mountain bikers is inviting volunteers to come out on June 9 and help clear a new section of trail that will bypass the current highway and railway track portion of Sea to Sky trail.
The short section of trail runs from the Cal-Cheak campground to the basalt columns (also known as French fry rocks) along the side of the highway.
According to Lamont, the old route posed a danger to cyclists who either took the highway or railway tracks on their way to the Cheakamus route. "We dont know when Centra Gas is going to put a gas pipeline in there either, so we thought it was a good time to move the trail," said Lamont.
There will be refreshments and barbecues for the trail maintenance crew.
The group will meet at 9 a.m. at the basalt columns. For more information, call Grant Lamont at 938-1799.
