Buffalo Creek, Little Scraggy Trail Build, August 9-10
Our July build weekend was phenomenal with the volunteers really ramping up their efforts. Because of their hard work, we completed about 75% the east side of Little Scraggy. We’ve just about finished the rough cut portion of the trail and we’re moving on to building from scratch. While this might sound like hard work and really difficult, the terrain is pretty friendly and easy to work with. We’ll be back at it again on August 9th and 10th and there’s no experience needed. Here’s where you come in; we provide the tools and the guidance, you provide the effort. Come for a day or spend the weekend and camp with us. We’ll have a lot of fun while building some new singletrack trail.
We’ll meet at our campsite along 550 Road. 550 Road is about 13 miles south on County Road 126 from the intersection of Highway 285. Go through the town of Buffalo Creek, up the hill past the North Fork Volunteer Fire and Rescue Station and at the end of a long straightaway, turn right onto Road 550 (also known as Redskin Creek Rd. or Wellington Lake Rd.). Head west on 550 Road about 1/3 of a mile to a parking area on the left side of the road with a steel post and cable fence. Look for the COMBA sign and drive through the gate. (see map for details)
There will be a light breakfast available. After a quick meeting, we’ll hike into the work site. It’s about a mile hike each way. We’ll work till 2:00 pm and then there will be free time to go ride or just relax. We’ll have a post work BBQ each day so please register so we can plan accordingly and contact you if things should change.
Dress in sturdy work clothes including boots, long pants (recommended), work gloves, hat and sunglasses. Remember to bring water, your own lunch, sunscreen and a pack to carry them in. A hydration pack works great for this purpose. There is no water available at the campsite so bring your own.
So come help us continue our work on Little Scraggy trail. Remember, you give us 5 hours, we’ll give you 5 miles… of new trail. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org. See you on the 9th.
