Frequently Asked Questions

What Should I Wear?

Boots or sturdy closed toed shoes, long pants, and layered clothing on top. A long-sleeved pullover or sweatshirt over a long-sleeved t-shirt usually works well because one is prepared for cold or hot weather. Even if it's really cold, you'll warm up once you start working. Other items to consider wearing are sunglasses and a hat (especially during tick season).

What Should I Bring?

You should bring a sack lunch/snack and plenty of water. Bug spray, sun block, and work gloves are recommended.

Do I need to bring tools?

Tools will be provided, but if you happen to have a Pulaski or McCloud tool, bring it! 

Do I need trail building experience?

Nope! 9B Trails will provide the training necessary for you to build. The Crew Chief will be there to guide you and answer any questions you may have. 

Is there an age limitation for volunteers?

Due to liability reasons, we limit our volunteer age to 14 years and above, unless accompanied by a parent/guardian. Also, if any volunteer is a minor (under 18), we require that the guardian sign a waiver and medical form for the minor.  

When do we meet and what happens?

Meeting times vary and will be advertised accordingly. Before work begins, those supervising will give a give a brief safety talk. After orientation, the group hikes to the build location. The build will usually start soon thereafter.
