As part of my independent study in Advanced Trail Design & Construction I will be leading a trail construction day on Saturday, April 27th in Homer Folks Forest in Oneonta, NY. All are welcome. We will be building a new technical, rocky, multi-purpose trail that is geared toward mountain bikers. Since this will be a "black diamond" rated trail for bikers, we're calling it Black Coffee.
The trail will be approximately 1.2 miles long; how much we get done depends largely on the turnout on build day. Details are below are tentative and will be solidified as we approach the build day.
08:15 AM: Crew Leader Meeting, Homer Folks Forest trailhead
09:00 AM: Meet at Homer Folks Forest trailhead, walk up to site
09:15 AM: Safety Meeting, Trail building tutorial
09:45 AM: Division into groups, hike to designated sections of trail
10:00 AM: Digging at respective sections
12:45 PM: Return tools at site entrance, thank you's, pack up, etc.
Volunteers are more than welcome, even if you don't have any trail building experience. This could be a fun and valuable learning opportunity. Right now I have 4 crew leaders working under me and would love to have a couple more. The crew leaders are people who have experience building trail, in the sense of bench cutting, ensuring proper use of inslope/outslope, grade reversals, etc.
Bring your bike and riding clothes for a ride afterward!
Please pass the word on to your clubs/riding buddies/enemies/etc. and let me know if you're interested in joining. Cheers!
