BACK FOR THE SECOND OF MANY YEARS... JOIN US FOR THE 2021
THE COHUTTA CLEAN-UP!
What: Spring Cleaning- Wilderness-style! The goal is to sweep through the local area and leave miles of our beautiful mountain gravel rides, trail access roads, and trailheads better than we found them. This is a great opportunity to rid the roadsides of unsightly trash. (Before the leaves fill back in, and the poison ivy branches out again!)
Who: Everyone is welcome to volunteer! We'll have options for bicycle riders, hikers/walkers, and even trail runners who want to get in on the plogging* action. Youth under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
When: Sunday, March 7, 2021. 9am Meet-Up and Coffee, 10am-2pm Clean Up
Where: Meet at Mulberry Gap (400 Mulberry Gap Road, Ellijay, GA 30105.) From there we'll divide up into crews and head out to take care of areas possibly including:
CCC Rd towards Eton * FS 68 * FS 90/90B * FS 64 * Shakerag * Bear Creek Overlook / Parking Lot * Cohutta Overlook towards Pinhoti 3 * Tatum Lead Rd towards Pinhoti 4 * Dennis Mill
Cost: FREE! There's no cost to volunteer
* But, we'd love to invite you to come stay with us for the weekend, or sign up for Breakfast ($13.00 @ 8:30am) or Dinner ($20.00 @ 6:00pm) You can make a reservation at www.MulberryGap.com or give us a call.
Pot-luck!: We'll be having an afternoon potluck based around Chef Ginni's famous chili when everyone returns at around 2pm! Please let us know below if you/your group plans to stay, and what item(s) you'd like to bring.
What should I bring?: We'll provide basic items like trash bags and safety vests.
Plan to bring your bike and gear (if you'd like to be part of a rolling team) or the things you need for walking/hiking/jogging if you'll be part of a team on foot.
An empty backpack or rucksack that you can wear while walking/cycling would be a good idea so you don't have to carry your trash and recycling bags by hand.
Bring all the normal things you'd need to be out on the trails/roads like hydration, sunscreen, insect repellent, etc. Work gloves might come in handy.
Plan to bring a lunch (unless you just plan to hold out until 2pm) There will be a potluck centered around Chef Ginni's Chili when we return!
