    More Info

    Here is a bit more information about the trail project we will work on with the IMBA Trail Care Crew:

    Trailwork will be organized by Bill Haire and the Land Trust. The Trail Care Crew will be on hand teaching ideal trail building techniques.

    Trailwork itself will consist of construction of the single track along Rough and Ready Highway from the Church property west to the end of Kenny Ranch property (first house on north side of the highway is at the end of the property). This segment is about 1,100 feet in length (almost 1/4 mile). Another possibility is to also build a bridge over the ditch channel where the water drops out of the upper ditch and follows the stream down to the Lower Rough and Ready Ditch.

    Should be a great day!

    About the IMBA Trail Building School

    The IMBA Trail Care Crew will be in town soon to teach us the latest ideas and techniques for designing and building sustainable trails. All area staff and trail enthusiasts are invited and enrollment is free. BONC and YBONC be hosting the program at and near Twin Cities Church starting at 9AM on Saturday 11/6.

    This program is for all volunteers, staff, teams and trail users: 1/2 day classroom; 1/2 field work. Everyone who likes trails and wants to help maintain and improve them is welcome. The day begins with a morning of class time where we will learn the latest techniques in trail design and improvement. YBONC will provide lunch for a $5 donation. In the afternoon, we will apply what we learned on singletrack at Kenney Ranch property adjacent to Twin Cities.

    If you have not attended an IMBA TCC trail building class, be prepared to be inspired and excited. You'll learn what it takes to create great trails that include outstanding switchbacks, drainage and flow. The crew will also talk about what it takes to get permission to build a trail (which is ALWAYS the hardest part). Hope you can join us.
