HUGE - Sandy Ridge Trail Project

Sat, 11/08/2014 - 9:00am - 2:00pm

NW Trail Alliance (NWTA) will be sending crews throughout the Sandy Ridge Trail System to do tread repair and making new trail improvements.

To accomplish all the work needed, we need 80 to 100 volunteers.

This will be our SINGLE LARGEST trail project for the Fall season and our efforts will be enhanced with the support of the BLM, IMBA Trail Solutions and multiple event sponsors.

RSVP now!!!   so we can properly prepare and plan for the days activities (tools, equipment, food, and so on).

Our Goal is to send 10 teams of 8 people to multiple project sites.  In a single day we will be working on miles of trail and we need your help to accomplish everything that needs to be done.

Growlers (Castle Rock) Mega built work party

Sat, 11/15/2014 - 10:00am - 2:00pm

The annual foul weather mega-build at Growlers is on for Saturday, November 15th. We are in the process of completing all the recon and prep that is necessary to make this work.

Our focus will be on a three-mile loop that will be a significant addition to the system. With area between the trailhead and the blue gate limited and logging on the way, the future is going to be farther out and to the north.

All info about tools, crew breakdown, meeting places, etc. will be forthcoming.  If you are interested in helping out, please contact Jim Lemonds at:
