Trailwork Sat May 7th - The Lakes - 9:30A

Postby diggingtrail » Sat Apr 30, 2011 8:54 pm

Trailwork coming up next weekend at The Lakes. The main goal of the workday will be to redo the entrance to trail 1 on George St. Secondary aims will be to mitigate erosion issues on the lower sections of the Old One (literally the old trail 1). The entrance to trail 1 has been a mess for a year now since a tree came down and then Met-Ed or Verizon put in a new pole. Well it's time to fix that mess so that we no longer have to get off our bikes to make the short little climb and turn. The reroute will be relatively short but will work much better and will be accessed from the same area. The erosion control work will be to de-berm the outer edge of the trail and redirect water flow. The lower section of the Old One is pretty steep and doesn't have many directional changes so water picks up a good amount of speed and is doing quite a number on the trail over the last few years.

What: Trailwork on Trail 1 at The Lakes
When: Sat May 7th at 930A
Where: The Lakes meet at the George St. parking lot
Bring: Work gloves, water, and sturdy shoes. YAMBA as always will provide the tools and Clif Bars.
