Event description

The camp out and work party at Coldwater Lake has been approved by the U.S. Forest Service for the weekend of June 1-3. This event will feature ride opportunities on Friday and Sunday, a full-on trail build on Saturday, a party on Saturday night, and a rare chance to camp on the north side of the mountain. If you haven’t been to Coldwater Lake, it’s unbelievably beautiful. We have been granted a one-of-a-kind exemption to camp right near the lake. Bring the family and make it a weekend, as there will be other families to share the experience with!
