The transition from spring to summer is in full swing. Trails are starting to become crowded with face slappers and tall grass. Fortunately we have implemented an adopt a trail section program that will allow us to focus large trail days on new trails or major repairs while the adoptees handle the minor trail trimmings. It is not a small task by any means, we have miles of trails that require constant trimming. Please thank these teams, shops or individuals when you see them.

While we are on the topic of trail work we have a ton going on right now. Wahlfield Park trail building has begun so look for Wednesday night trail building sessions and the occasional weekend work day.
Merrell Trail has a trail repair night coming up this week to fix some wet spots and sometime in June we will start Phase 2 and we could use day time help for 10 days in a row! Phase 2 will add 2 miles of trail to the east.
All events will be listed on the events page.
