Pick Mattock Safety Tips with the Jolly Rovers

by Natrieifia Miller

The Jolly Rovers deliver trainings in the craft of stonework to help trail builders improve recreational access to public parks and forests. This is the first video in a series we’ll share on the blog. This training was delivered during Wilderness Skills Institute (WSI) 2015 and filmed by Patrick Slaughter.  In this quick video, they review proper handling and storage of a pick mattock. More informative videos from the Rovers will be posted soon, so stay tuned!
