Volunteers are being sought to help build two area trails. No previous experience is needed.

Participants may work for all or part of the day and must wear long pants, long-sleeved shirt, sturdy hiking shoes or boots and glasses or sunglasses.

Hard hats and tools are provided. Bring water and lunch.

To work on the Hobart Trail Link , meet at the Lakeview gate at the top of Hobart Road at 8 a.m. today.

This trail will be multi-use but mostly a mountain biking alternative to the steep, hot, dusty Sunflower Hill Road. It is close to half done.

You may drive your 4-wheel drive or team up with another volunteer.

Volunteers may also help build the Sierra Canyon Trail that connects to the Tahoe Rim Trail and Carson Valley Discovery Trail on Saturday.

Park at the junction of Centennial Drive and Snowshoe Lane by 8 a.m. and walk up Snowshoe Lane to the kiosk and trail. Centennial Drive is a half-mile north of Genoa. If you're late, follow the trail behind the kiosk and walk almost one mile up to the end of the trail where volunteers will be working. Cold drinks provided. Bring a lunch.

Work days through September are posted at carsonvalleytrails.org/Programs-Calendar.html.

If you plan on helping with the Hobart Trail Link, contact Jeff Potter at jeffpotter@musclepowered.org.

For the Sierra Canyon Trail, just show up.
