The BCT is kicking off it's trail building season next weekend, Saturday November 16th. Our goal this year is to complete the Copper Mountain Loop off of the northern end of the BCT near Mayer. We don't have any funding this season to hire any trail crews so we are relying on volunteers to get er done! There is a training crew out there now from SCA (Student Conservation Association) working the trail, but are making slow progress.
Since this is more up by the Prescott area, this is a great opportunity for the Precott folks to come down and lend a hand. The quicker we get this section built the more riding opportunities there are to ride when Precott trails are snowed in or to muddy to ride this winter.
