The Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship partnered with the Plumas National Forest in celebration of National Public Lands Day on September 24th in the Lakes Basin Recreation Area. SBTS hosted two volunteer workdays (23rd & 24th) with multiple work locations throughout the Lakes Basin Trail System. The focus was on restoring trails that feed into the Pacific Crest Trail. Round Lake and Long Lake received the greatest amount of attention, as they are two of the highest use trails and provide direct access to the PCT from Gold Lake Highway and the nearby mountain lodges.
In total, the event attracted 88 volunteers, traveling 14,218 miles to work on trails, camp under the Sierra sky, drink beer, eat BBQ, and share in a mountain experience with like-minded, fun-loving trail enthusiasts. This National Public Lands Day event highlights our strong partnership with the Plumas National Forest and our commitment to maintaining these trails for generations.
Thanks to all those who attended and worked up a sweat improving our trails. We couldn't do it without you!
