Stub Stewart XC Trail Building

Come join us for the kickoff of this winter's build season!   You will get a good look at the progress that has already been made from the North, and get a good idea of just how close we are to joining the two trails.  This year we will working from the north end, so no more 2 mile hikes on freshly cut and muddy trail.  We will be able to ride bikes on the multi-use and XC trails (which all stay remarkably dry in winter) to the Freeride area, where its just a short walk to the worksite. 

For more details on the project click here: http://nw-trail.org/forum/trail-care-trail-building/trail-project-update...

 

We will meet at the Welcome Center of Stub Stewart State Park at 9am for sign-in and a brief safety/overview talk, then procede to the trail by bike.  We will ride bikes to the Freeride area at the end of N. Caddywhomper, then its a very short walk to the construction site.  We will head back to the vehicles at roughly 1pm, depending on the weather and everyone's mood and willingness. 

We will provide sandwiches for lunch on the trail. Please bring your own water.  Please signup for this event so we know how much food to bring! 

We have plenty of tools, but do bring your own work gloves.  Other suggestions: hiking boots, long pants, rain gear.

Price: $0.00

LUNCH UPGRADED!

We'll be providing a warm meal for lunch out on project site as well.   Serving homemade chili and cornbread in the middle of the woods (very near where you'll be building trail).   Will have covered tent area and a campfire too.   5-star hospitality, eh?   Feel free to bring beverages of choice.

Bring your bike!!!

 

Update ** Bring your BIKE ** 
I have learned that all the tools needed will be supplied (and transported) to the work-site. Thus we can ride to the project area and then ride afterward.  Great opportunity to check out the other trails that have already been built.

Possible change to the parking site.

To avoid some climbing, and road climbing at that, we will change the meeting site to the Clayhill horse parking/staging area.  It is closed to horses during the winter, so the parking lot is wide open, I'm just waiting to get an OK from the park. 

Its very easy to find, just follow to the main road through the park, past Hilltop day use area.  Clayhill parking lot is at the very end of the road.
