    Just a confirmation. The approval has been granted and the trail day is on. Will be another 4.5 miles of nice flowing single track added to the approx. 3 that currently exist there. If you have time or use these trails please come on out and lend a hand! If you can't there will be more days coming up. Most Sundays until it is done.

    Thanks for sharing this!

    Come one, come all! Bring your bike to ride to the construction site.

    We'll have food and drinks for everyone as well as Rogue tools to borrow. You can bring hard-tined rakes, square-edge shovels or leaf rakes if you have 'em.

    Please invite everyone you know! Family friendly for sure!

    Thank you in advance!

    Man! There was 113 volunteers on Sunday! Sweet! Got A lot of work done. Trailbildr can tell us more on how far we got I believe. Rode my Farley in and at the end of the day rode it all the way out. These trails are going to be Fast and Very Flowing! Thanks for all the hard work Trail Werks and all involved with getting this going!

    I think we got 10,000 linear feet of trail built, including the rake-n-ride.

    PLEASE come out this Sunday! If we have another great turnout we can get loop two done! So far, connector plus NW loop one is done!

    Sunday, Hawkins Rd trail head, 9am. Bring bikes. We are getting kinda far from the trail head for sure. We have the middle loop to finish this Sunday and 80-90 volunteers should get it done. We've got as much digging Sunday as we had last Sunday, fo sho!

    We have Rogue tools, which are the best, so digging is easy! No rocks so it digs pretty fast. Sandy soil so shaping is easy. Open and flowy goodness!

    Hot laps before and after! Early-bird special at 7:30 if you want to get a sneak peak and start working early. We've got 142x12 Bob trailer axles so you can run your crazy party-bike with a trailer!

    Thanks! PLEASE spread the word!

    Phase 1 video and donation link below! We blow through $600-700 each work day with food and supplies! We have already spent thousands on tools and food...

    55 people showed up last Sunday and we built another ~1800 linear feet of trail! Some sweet sidehill benching!

    We'll be at it again this Sunday, 9am...

    You get 113 volunteers. And I can't get a single person to work on a State Park project with 3 Local IMBA groups.

    5 work days, 1500-ish hours and we added 3.7 miles of new trail to Bacon Ridge! Phase 3 approval should happen in calendar 2017. We'll be proposing an additional 12 or so miles of trail heading north and some additional stuff in the south. We are going to recommend some jump stuff, lumber and maybe even a pump track, or at least a pump trail... Parking is and will continue to be an issue on Hawkins Rd. We are trying to identify options.

    Thanks again! We should have online and .pdf and printed maps in the coming month or so.

    See you on the trail!

    Thank You Mike! Great job! 12 miles is going to be a lot of work. You guys did a heck of a job planning and fighting for this. I have been fighting Bronchitis for the last few weeks,sorry I haven't been there. Will be helping to maintain.

    Thanks again!
