Got a chance to work with the Junior MTB Team supported by East Coasters a couple of weeks ago.
They wanted to help with opening the Price Mountain and Patterson Mountain trail system of which myself and Roanoke IMBA have been working on for a while.
We worked on the lower part of Helms trail, below where Loop trail intersects it. We were asked by the Forest Service to not re-open the upper part of Helms as well as the Loop trail due to poor construction. Kapusta and I both really liked the lower part of Helms and thought it was worthy of re-opening.

This stretch of trail was in good shape except for being quite grown over
A few hours later and it was ready to roll
It had to be properly approved by some wheels
A few more from yesterday in prime leaf season
At the trailhead on Patterson Creek road
Thanks again to all the kids and their dads for coming out to work on this old classic trail system
Hopefully we can get the Forest Service to put some signs up soon or at least give us some signs.
