Valentine's weekend is coming up and Trail Creek needs some love. The new Widespread downhill trail has been rough cut in with the machine and now needs a lot of finish work including shaping huge berms, jumps and tabletops as well as removing rocks, roots, and debris. We are sprinting to the finish line and need your help. We have decided to double down and have back to back workdays Noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday Feb. 14th and Sunday Feb. 15th. We'll also have a group ride Sunday after the workday. We'll provide lunch for all volunteers at the end of both workdays. Please bring long pants, a water bottle, and a shovel, hard rake, mcleod and/or rogue hoe if you have one. We will also have lots of extra tools on hand. Meet at the Upper Parking Lot at noon.
