VOLUNTEER ON THE TRAIL CREW

     In a joint effort between the Golden Triangle Group of the Sierra Club  and the USDA Forest Service, trail planning began in 1981, and the  construction began in 1985. The final section of the trail was located  and marked during the fall of 1990, but the group and other volunteers continue to maintain the trail. You do not need to be a member of the Sierra Club to volunteer. Any person can help! 


     Performing trail work is often strenuous, hot, cold, and tiring, but making new friends who appreciate the  different plant communities, interesting topography, wildlife, beautiful scenery, and various forest management activities will keep you coming back to help, so everyone can enjoy the Sabine National Forest. 


    Like hikers, trail volunteers need to bring essential items with them to "Be Prepared" to be on an wild land trail without cell phone service. 


Items Needed 


  1. Daypack
  2. Water
  3. Food
  4. Sturdy Footwear - Boots encouraged
  5. Rain Poncho
  6. First Aid Kit
  7. Map/Compass
  8. Appropriate Clothing
  9. Know your limitations
  10. PPE -Gloves, safety glasses

Volunteering can be as easy as picking up litter at one of the three trailheads, twice a month.
