    Trail Building in Glen Major (3 Rocks) Oct 27th & 28th

    Trail Building: Oct 27th & 28th
    The Glen Major Trails Need Your Help!

    Last year we built 2 km of new sustainable trails replacing several badly eroded sections. Well we're back at it again. If you liked what we did on TJ's way, come on out and help us on this build. This will be completely hand built so it will be single track, i.e. not 4' wide.

    Come out and learn how to build sustainable trails, meet other trail users, and make a contribution to the trails you enjoy. Give us a few hours of your time and energy and together we'll improve the trails we love to ride. Bring some friends to help and go for a well earned ride or walk together afterwards. If you can only make one day, or even only a few hours, we’ll still welcome your help.

    • Meet at 9:30am each day at the “Bell Tower” parking lot at the North end of the Uxbridge 7th Concession, by the Albright Road allowance – South of the Durham Forest parking lot on 7th Concession.
    • We’ll walk or ride into the work location.
    • Dress for the weather in layers. Bring good footwear & work gloves.
    • Bring a bag lunch – snacks and drinks will be provided.
    • High school students earn your volunteer hours. Bring form to sign.

    Please register with me at this email or 647-333-6241

    This project is under the direction of the TRCA and the GM/WW Stewardship Committee, with support from the Durham Mountain Bicycling Association, Uxbridge Horsemen Association, & Oak Ridges Trail Association.

    Jason,

    I'll try my best to be there. I'll also inform my students about it and try to encourage them to come too.

    I'll confirm ASAP.

    You'll be supplying all necessary tools?

    Yes we'll be supplying tools.

    But if you come dress appropriately, i.e. in layers, work boots, work cloves, etc.

    And bring a lunch, the TRCA wants us to brown bag it.

    Jason,

    I had a mountain bike practice today (in the drizzle so only 2 riders showed up), but they both told me that they'd be there this weekend. We have another practice on Thursday at 3 Rocks/Walker's Woods. I hope a few more will commit by then. Personally, I think I'm leaning towards making it out on Sunday (my son has a hckey game on Saturday).

    Thanks to everyone who helped out.

    150m of fresh hand built single track. Thanks to the dozen or so volunteers who lent a hand in less the ideal weather.

    Photos are up.

    As long as people stop building intersections in the middle of blind singletrack downhills then it's all good.

    I helped out for about an hour and a half on Saturday before a family commitment. I went out and rode the section on both Thursday and Sunday. Too bad that someone went through on horseback so soon after it was built. It's pretty chewed up. Other than that, it looks great.
