Temporary Trail Workers Wanted

This oughta help!
Big donation to this new trail network that is just outside of southern Michaux.  I heard one of our own is on the work crew for the summer.  I predict smiles to come.

 Trail Conservancy is building a stacked loop trail system in the Emmitsburg watershed. Although shared use, its mountain bike focused. We have finished the beginner loop (2.5 mi). We are now building the intermediate loop (5+ miles). The advanced loop will be about (3miles). Here's a link to rough estimate map:

Next year a trail to the town, plus a challenging intermediate loop will add another 8 to 10 miles.

We are looking to hire temporary trail builders for the summer. Experience helps, but not necessary. Duties are mostly hand finishing already rough cut trail, corridor clearing and bench cutting trail where needed. We provide tools. Pay is $15 per hour and you get a 1099 for taxes end of year. Starts in a week for the rest of the summer, with possible week off 1st week of August. Weather affects us some, and we get out of the woods for lightening.

Thanks for posting. I've got two slots open right now. Call for more info. We are working to finish the 1st 4 miles of the intermediate by mid August, and another mile by end of August. 2.5 mile beginner trail is already finished.
