Trail Work

This month we will be back on the Garden Grove Trail 392 (aka the switchbacks) to continue repairing the existing tread by removing rocks on the bottom edge, improving drainage and working on the switchbacks to improve flow. We will start work where we left off in February on the single track section of the trail. We ...should be able to get the trail buffed out down to the double track (just in time for the Whiskey Off Road).

MEET: At the group picnic site in the Thumb Butte Parking Lot. We've reserved this for the day.

We will drive up to the top of the trail and hike in from there.

Wear LONG PANTS, LONG SLEEVE shirt, gloves, HIGH TOP boots and eye protection (sunglasses are fine). Bring at least 1 liter of water.

We will bring some extra water, gatorade, snacks, tools and hard hats. 


We will work until 11:30, THEN HEAD BACK TO THE GROUP SITE FOR A PMBA PICNIC!

The ride begins at 2:00 pm. We ride until about 4:00 pm, then enjoy visiting and snacks after the ride. PMBA will provide after-ride drinks. Snacks are pot-luck.
