Weekend Mirror Lake MTB Trail Building Volunteer Work Parties

cmbr4Hooray! We’ve got a few weekend work parties for you all!

Sunday Sep 11th, Saturday Sep 17th, and Sunday Sep 25th all from 1-4pm. Meet on Camp Gorsuch Rd at the 2nd trail crossing (before the Boy Scout Camps – the link on the map is a little too far down the road).

We have a lot more root cutting, trail raking and slope smoothing to do. Bring work gloves, a lopper or hand pruner if you have one, and youth under 18 will neeed a parent signature.

Goal: Hand/Tool work for finishing sections of newly cut trails.

We will continue to need volunteers every Wednesday 6-8:30pm, and either Saturday or Sunday from 1-4pm until the trails are completed or we reach our termination date in late September or early October.
