Trail Stewardship Team: Independence Trail

Join BYLT out on the land for a trail workday on Independence Trail on Thursday, April 4th from 9:00 to 1:00 pm; please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start time to fill out liability forms. Meet at the trailhead off of HWY 49 headed away from Nevada City. If you are unfamiliar with the trail, visit BYLT’s Trails Portal for more information. Tasks for the day include improving the drainage, cleaning off structures, trimming back the brush and improving the overall quality of the trail. Come help us keep this well used gem of a trail in good shape. Volunteers will earn a Trail Stewardship Team button for this event.

Safety: Wear long sleeve shirts, trousers, work shoes/boots, and gloves. Please come prepared with plenty of water, a lunch, and everything you need to have a fun, safe work day. BYLT, SYRPA, and State Parks will provide the tools and materials needed to complete the work. If you have any questions or comments, email

Please note: In the event of rain, this workday will be cancelled and rescheduled for a later date.
