Event description

(UPDATE 10/11/2016: Trail inspected by park trail ranger and it’s officially… OPEN!)

We need your help wrapping up construction of new section of trail to re-route Barberchair.  Easy work for all skill levels (family friendly!)
Need 20 volunteers on October 9th @ 9am to complete trail work and open new trail!

What are we going to do? Here’s a 5-minute VIDEO WALK-THRU TOUR AND CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS by lead trail volunteer:  https://vimeo.com/184213799

Goal is to put finishing work on completing ~400 yards of brand new single track trail.   Major work has already been done using NWTA’s trail digging machines thru a Recreation Trails Program grant.  Remaining work needs hand finishing crew to remove roots, clear duff, and tidy up the backslope.

Other details about event…
This will be a great event for whole family!   Just brought your kid(s) mountain biking the weekend prior and want to show them how trails get made?  This is your event!
Been wanting to help improve trails in the shared-use area of the park for hiking, horse riding, AND riding?  This is your event!
Want an easy trail work day that doesn’t involve a lot of hard work?  Well, this is pretty much it.. finishing work is generally light work.  Chop a small root, toss it aside.  Knock down backslope and scoop up a little bit of dirt..  Basic stuff that’s no more difficult that light yard work.
Your work counts towards NWTA’s matching requirement on RTP grant.
Food?  Yes!
Lunch will be provided by NWTA.    RSVP on Event registration page so we know how much food to be prepared to share.
Tools?
All tools provided.  Just bring work gloves, drinking water and snack, plus weather appropriate clothing.
“First tracks?”
If you build it, you get to ride it!    Bring your bike and riding gear to get first tracks on new trail!
