Mega-Work Party Set for November 13th

Sign-up begins now for this year’s mega-work party at Growlers Gulch on Sunday, November 13th.

We are working on details re: where to meet, when we start, etc. and I will provide that info to you in the next few weeks. Hard-working kids and non-mountain bikers are welcome.

In 2009, we had 67 volunteers on board for this effort. In 2010, we had 89. This is the reason you are able to ride Legacy – because those 89 volunteers knocked it out in a single day. Completion of that trail also led to construction of WTF and Vortex in 2010.

We will have everything clearly flagged and assign people to specific crews. Right now, the goal is to expand the ride options in the Secret Garden to the point that it becomes a destination, much like the upper trails.

Here are the priorities. We will take on as much as our crew size allows.

  • Complete the Hawg Trail
  • Complete a new line that parallels the existing Secret Garden line
  • Begin work on a line Dave has flagged, starting from Cooley’s at the west end of the Creek Trail system to just south of Double Down. This will give riders another great way to descend from the upper trails
  • Begin work on a line flagged by Paul and Mel just south of Bitter Bitch that will hook up with Little Bitch

We have great riding at Growlers for one reason – people are willing to step up to build and maintain trail. Here is your chance to add another 2-3 miles of premium single-track to the system.

And, yes, despite the impression I might have created, we will be having multiple events at Growlers in 2012. Your participation on this day will qualify you for all of them.

  1. Jeep how can I help on Friday or Saturday the 11th-12th? I work Sundays now, and my mother will be in town from Alaska. Believe me; of the three obligations, moving dirt with like-minded others is preferred.

  2. Jeep, not sure if you noticed that rifle elk season ends on the 15th? I believe that Growlers is the Ryder wood unit?

  3. Laurie and I will be joining Jack on the Saturday work party our Pastor wouldn’t let us off for a Sunday work party.


  4. Jeep, I have a 3/4 ton truck 4×4 if you need me to bring it to carry any needed tools etc up to the work area. I’ve talked with Travis about bringing a shelter for his food and I do have one i can bring. This is my first work party so not sure what you need, but willing to help out.


  5. I’m in for working on Sunday. I’ve been wanting to check out this system for a whole now and pitch in. More than willing to help in any capacity.


  6. Mark – Do you know anyone who is going to be on Sunday’s crew? If so, I will put you with them. Also, besure to let me know if you need directions. We appreciate your help.
