Volunteer with us to help celebrate National Public Lands Day at Lory State Park! Nearly two decades ago, Overland Mountain Bike Club began its trail stewardship program (as Diamond Peaks Mountain Bike Patrol) by volunteering to help patrol and maintain the trail system at Lory State Park, one of our favorite regional ride areas. Pretty much where it all began!
We plan to perform maintenance on the West Valley Trail, one of the “most-loved” trails at Lory, by improving drainage in sections that often see muddy conditions. It’s our chance to Contribute as Trail Stewards, to give back, to maintain access on our public lands. Light breakfast fare and snacks for the trail will be provided. Work on trail will be followed by a BBQ lunch at Soldier Canyon Group Picnic Area.
When: Saturday, September 24, from 8:00am-2:00pm. BBQ to follow.
Who: Adults, and youth 15 years or older accompanied by a working volunteer parent. Registration required, for food and tool planning.
Where: Meet and park at the Soldier Canyon Group Picnic Areaby the MTB Skills Park. Volunteer Windshield Parking passes will be issued upon arrival and registration to those who do not have a valid State Parks Pass.
What to Wear/Bring: Please wear long pants and hiking boots or closed-toe shoes (no sandals or flip-flops). Bring two litres of water, sunscreen, sunhat, sunglasses, your favorite pair of work gloves, raingear, and a daypack. All tools gladly provided!
