    Lynn Woods Trail Build Day: Saturday April 22nd
    On Saturday April 22, 2006, Dieselbikes will be holding a Trail Maintenance day in Lynn Woods. This trail day has been approved by the Lynn Woods Park Management. Saturday will begin phase one of developing a new trail network on top of Mount Hermon near the baseball field parking lot. We will require a ton of volunteers to complete the job on Saturday. The trail work site is 10 minutes from the parking lot! Here is what you need to know:

    Start Time and Meeting Place:

    Everyone should meet at the ball field parking lot (Great Woods Road Entrance) at 9:00am. We will be leaving the parking lot by 9:15 after a trail work review meeting and head to the job site. If you can not make it there by 9:00, come any way and just ride or walk out to the work site. We will put you to work when you get their.

    Estimated Project Time:

    We accept this project to take 5 hours to complete. If you bring your bike, you can be the first to ride this new trail! No group ride is scheduled by Dieselbikes after this trail work.

    What to Bring:

    Bring your own bug spray, food, water, pair of work gloves, your bike is optional.

    What WE are going to do:

    The map below shows the job site area. A new Trail loop (Large blue dotted line loop on right) will be cut from the start of the Ball Field Trail (near the parking lot) once you are at the top of the hill climb and run through a pre-planned path over "NATURAL" technical terrain. The estimated distance of this loop is between 600 and 700 feet and is designed to ensure long term sustainability with heavy bike traffic.

    There is a ton of work and will need groups of people to cut, clear and armor sections of the new trail. This new trail loop will be a hot spot for mountain bikes and we plan to make this loop flow in both directions.

    This will be a labor intensive day and tools will be provided by GBNEMBA (trail day sponsor) for this work day. Please PM or e-mail ([email protected]) if you need further information.
