I got a note yesterday through the grapevine that Steve Walker and the DIORC are looking for some help to get some trail and route maintenance projects done on the island. I know a couple of volunteers are heading up Aug 6 or Aug 7, but if weekdays won't work for you, get in touch with Steve and see if there aren't other dates that would work.

I sent an email, as I'll be up there in a couple weeks, but haven't got a reply yet. If I don't hear anything I'll just stop in and ask. I'll bring my trail cleaning tools either way.

Is there any extra cost to go to Drummond and get on the Trails, besides the Bridge Fee, Ferry Fee and ORV Sticker?

I think you have it all covered - except for that pesky stop at the gas station

That too.... I'm looking at going there with a few friends in 2013/2014. Do we need a guide or can we just hit the trails?

You can just hit the trails. But having someone along that knows the place never hurts.

True Very True. Seeing that I've never been there. I'll have to post the Event here! See who all can come.

Stop by the Bear Track inn and pick up a map of the route or if you us a GPS you can get maps from Valley Ventures mapping VVmapping. You don't need a guide but for the first time I wouldn't go alone and for that matter parts of the island even if you know the route you shouldn't go alone. Can be a long walk back if you get into trouble and cell phone coverage on the island especially on the eastern part isn't very good to nonexsistant.

I'll have to give Steve a call if there's something I can do the week before DOA. If anyone will be up there that week let me know.
