Event description

*** EVENT FULL – No longer taking registration for this event. See you next time !

NEW TRAIL – During this trail project day, we will be building the final section of a new trail called Johnny Royale.  A new trail at SRT.    The completion of this trail will be another major accomplishment for NWTA, BLM, and all the Sandy Ridge volunteers.

For more information about Johnny Royle, check out Jason Van Horn’s Bermstyle blog.  See link below



Who: Newbies and non-members are welcome; tools are provided. Hardy kids who don’t mind potentially bad weather are invited as we often have a good group of them and will find some tasks for them to work on together.


When: 9:00am – 2:00pm Sunday, December 2nd, 2018.   

Please RSVP- see link below


Where: Meet at the Sandy Ridge Trailhead Parking lot. https://goo.gl/maps/FuhqPAy87NK2


What to expect: We will meet at the parking lot at 9:00am, sign waivers, break up into smaller groups and hand out tools for the various maintenance areas identified and be heading out to start working by 9:30. Groups will carpool up to their assigned area with tools. You should expect to work rain or shine for approximately 4 hours. Weather can be variable this time of year so check the forecast and dress accordingly.


We’re working to line up morning coffee/donuts and will update the event when they are confirmed.

A big thanks to our official NWTA Trail project Fat Tire Farm who will be providing swag for the raffle and post ride food.  And thank you to our loyal beer sponsor, Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) which has generously provided beer for this event as well as many others.

What to bring: Lunch, plenty of water, snacks, and any other clothing/protection you’d want when doing landscaping type work (digging, raking, cutting/sawing, etc). Tools are provided but you are welcome to bring your own if you’ve got a favorite.


What to wear:

  • Boots
  • Sturdy work gloves (more than one pair is a good idea)
  • A light, long sleeved shirt
  • Rain gear as appropriate for the weather
  • Eye protection is recommended (eyeglasses, safety glasses, etc.)
  • A hard hat or your bike helmet if you don’t have one




Volunteers should direct questions to the Sandy Ridge LST team at SandyRidge@nw-trail.org


Bonus for all those who read the full event write-up, FTF will be helping shuttle riders up for a post trail work ride.
