DGATV’s Trailer Unveiling (2017)

DGATV’s Directors viewed the new trailer at last night’s (July 19th) Executive meeting. This new addition will solve much of the difficulty in getting tools and materials to remote locations along the trail for maintenance. The trailer has been equipped with a hydraulic lift and will be invaluable for dumping rocks and gravel for hole repair.
