    Trail Workday Opportunities - Please post events

    Let's use this thread to post trail work days coming very soon... that way someone looking for a last minute thing to do can just scroll to the end. Maybe keep it active/pinned?

    (I thought there was a similar thread elsewhere, but I'm being lazy and starting a new one.)

    This weekend:
    SF: Regular Sutro Stewards work day, Saturday, 9AM on Mt. Sutro (Note: the one in 2 weeks (2/18) is important: it's a day with Sutro Stewards, SF Urban Riders and Rec Park to work on the Interior Greenbelt trails).

    Medocino Coast Cyclists is having a work day Saturday.

    What else? I'm surprised I can't find much else. Is Tamarancho holding a work day this weekend? One Tam is holding two events, but they're full. Looks like there's a bunch next weekend in a few places including SF and Demo.

    In all my years trying to advocate for trail work help, MTBR hasn't really been a hot bed for generating excitement. Not sure why...seems like the right demographic too. Guess it can't hurt to keep trying though.
    I'm not sure how this works.

    Indeed, there's people here who are already heavily involved, and others who just like to complain. But there's always a few new folks and the goal is to get one or two of them, who will in turn stick with it, or even better invite their friends. I've found interesting events this way.

    This week:
    SF Urban Riders @ Laguna Honda Saturday 2/11 : https://www.facebook.com/events/1153727804725547/ .

    The MBoSC/Demo event has been canceled because, well, Demo is currently unreachable via any paved road. And surely it just gets worse in the forest.

    Were you the guy with the 2 trail dogs? Sorry we just missed you.

    Two of us rode up buzzard & ridge to meet Dave & crew at upper toolbox. We finished berms & drains & clean-up in Flow segments 1 & 2.

    YES, there will be work on Flow as well. And the conditions are perfect for trail work!

    Work Day on the the new connections at Granite Bay.

    Copied from Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship email.


    Hi All - We are pleased to announce that the long awaited Center Trail and Granite Bay Multiuse Trail project has been approved! This 1.5 year project will address many of the eroded areas on the highly used trails at Folsom Lake SRA:
    - Reroute the existing Center Trail in Winter/Spring 2018 (Phase 1)
    - Reroute several sections of the Multiuse Trail in Fall 2018 (Phase 2); and
    - Restore/rehabilitate other sections of the Multiuse Trail in Winter 2019 (Phase 3)

    Phase 1 will start on Sat Jan 20 and Sun Jan 21 as volunteers move remove brush from the new Center Trail corridor. Sun Jan 21 will be a tentative day pending how much work gets done on Saturday.

    Use this link to RSVP and volunteers will need to RSVP so we can ensure headcount: https://sierratrails.org/event/grani...january-20-21/

    Our cap is at 30 volunteers for each work day and work will last about four hours per day. We will meet at the Granite Bay Beach parking lot at 10am. We encourage people to carpool together to Granite Bay. When you get to the Granite Bay entrance, let the Parks staff know you are there for trail work and you will receive a day pass.

    Volunteers will be moving pre-sawed branches and cut trees from the new trail corridor and staging next to the existing trail for eventual decommission. Work will be done with Parks, Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship, FATRAC, TBF Racing, high school mountain bike team teens and other multiuser volunteers interested in participating. We'd like to see everyone out there working together!

    The work is in HIGH POISON OAK areas so volunteers need to wear long sleeve shirts, gloves, pants, sturdy closed toe shoes (no sandals) and use anti-poison oak ointments (bring your own) to protect themselves. Those highly allergic to poison oak are discouraged from working on these days.

    In March and April, Phase 1 will continue as State Parks will break ground on the new trail. At that time, more volunteer days will occur then to move dirt and perform trail finish work.

    We look forward to seeing you on Jan 20 and 21.

    Thank you.
