This in turn presents its own set of challenges for the grassroots volunteer organization that is typically quarterbacking management of that very same local trail network.

We’ve had many requests to provide plans to make a rock sling. After playing with several configurations, we’ve come up with a rock sling that is simple to build and has been working well for us with most rock sizes. You’ll need about 20 feet of chain (we used 400 pound as it’s light for carrying around yet still plenty strong), 9 quick links and some form of stiff tubing for the handles (we used PVC pipe).
