McKay Community Forest Trail Building

Fortuna Corpsmembers remove invasive ivy along a trail near Eureka as part of the McKay Community Forest trail project.

Building a trail from scratch is an art form. Opening a fully developed trail takes time.

CCC Fortuna Corpsmembers have spent years perfecting the art and readying a series of trails in Humboldt County.

The McKay Community Forest trail plan calls for 25 miles of trails and Corpsmembers are helping make it happen.

They’re also proactively protecting hikers by removing invasive species.
