Volunteer one day or the entire weekend, May 18-20, with Regional Parks staff and Volunteers for Outdoor California at Hood Mountain Regional Park and Open Space Preserve. V-O-Cal’s project at Hood Mountain will involve a reroute of approximately .3 miles of a previously steep, eroded section of the Nattkemper Trail.  We will replace it with a hiker-friendly sustainable trail on slopes just south of the summit. The new trail will run south east of the existing alignment to rejoin the Nattkemper Trail about halfway between the summit of Hood Mountain and the stunning Gunsight Rock overlook. Tools, gloves, instructions, and delicious food will be provided. Volunteers are welcome to camp onsite for free. Registration is required. No trail building experience is necessary. For more project details, a daily schedule, what to bring, to register, and more visit Volunteers for Outdoor California’s website at: http://v-o-cal.org/projects/2018/mthood2018.html
