July 31 Workday Set – All Welcome to Participate

The final workday for the season hosted by the Maah Daah Hey Trail Association (MDHTA) and the USDA Forest Service will be held on Saturday, July 31, 2021 at Coal Creek Trailhead located about 11.5 miles south of Medora on East River Road. The project will involve surfacing the trail from the Coal Creek Trailhead parking lot and campground to the MDHT trail. Heavy use of this trail has caused a great deal of erosion pushing trail users on to adjacent casual trails. MDHTA applied for and received a grant to surface the trail in this area to encourage users to stay on the trail. The goal of this workday is to surface between 1,000 and 1,200 feet of trail and have a good time doing it. We had a good turnout during Trails Day and we hope that your schedule will allow you to participate in this workday. Individuals and groups interested in participating in this program should contact Curt Glasoe, President MDHTA at 701-260-9459 or email him at curtglasoe@ndsupernet.com. This will help us to plan for enough food, drinks, tools, equipment, and trail prizes for all who attend. Attendees interested in participating should plan on meeting at Coal Creek Trailhead south of Medora. Directions from Medora, intersection of Pacific Avenue and East River Road: Turn south on East River Road cross the railroad tracks past Americinn, past the turnoff for Sully Creek State Park and Bully Pulpit. About 1.3 miles beyond the turnoff for Bully Pulpit the East River Road turns right (south). If you continue going straight rather than turning right you will visit Fryburg. When you turned right (south) you have approximately 6.5 miles to Coal Creek. The route is highlighted in yellow on the attached map. Click on Map to Coal Creek.
