With all the rain we've had here in Northern California, the weeds and thistles have taken over a lot of the single track trails. In some places, the trail is no more, just a lot of thorns.
One such trail at New Melones is a victim to this nonsense. So with the help of some locals, Ogre organized a trail cleanup day last Saturday. Trail work at New Melones April 30th
About 20 people showed up along with the local forrest service people, which provided the equipment to eradicate these weeds. Since I do ride this particular trail system, I felt I needed to be here and help out. I gotta tell you, I'm glad I was able to be there. It felt good to spend a day working the trail and making them ridable again.
If there is a call for trail work in your area, and you ride the trails, I ask that you assist your fellow riders with your time and energy. It is worth it and who knows, you might meet some new riders to ride with. The only regret was we came back to late for the cold beer.
Although we didn't get it all cut back, my group did a good bit of damage eliminating the head high stuff. Here are few pics of the day.
Thanks for looking,
