Annual Overnight Trail Work Weekend – RSVP req’d
August 13, 2022 @ 10:00 am - August 14, 2022 @ 4:00 pm
Join CBMBA for a weekend of trail work and community building!
What: Each year, CBMBA volunteers come out for a full weekend of trail work and good times. This year, we’re working on 405.3a (Hammer Trail) and putting in a crazy fun and sustainable re-route. RSVP (to email@example.com) is required for a head count for food and space for camping.
When: Saturday 8/13 and Sunday 8/14, beginning work at 10am each day. Please RSVP.
Where: Workday HQ and camping is near the very top of Walrod Gulch. It’s a high clearance road, so if you can’t make it, CBMBA is glad to bring in your overnight and workday gear so you can ride or hike up to the HQ area. Let us know in the RSVP. The camping area is 1.3 miles up Walrod Road, or 1 mile up from Warm Springs Trail.
Details: The point of these overnights is to get deep in there, and b/c of that, we stay there overnight! We’re supported by Rim Tours and food is provided for Saturday night, Sunday morning, and for a Sunday lunch. Work will begin on Saturday morning at 10am. We’ll break up into multiple groups, each with a crew leader, and head to a section of trail for instruction followed by construction. After a full day of work, everyone will head back to the campsite at 4pm to enjoy plenty of libations from Ska Brewing, followed by stellar raffle prizes and backcountry catering by Rim Tours. Volunteers are invited to camp out on-site, enjoy a campfire and laughs, and then wake up Sunday morning to coffee, breakfast, and a make-your-own sandwich bar provided by Rim Tours, before getting back to work. We’ll stage tools up on the trail, as it’s another 1.7 miles from the HQ/camping area to the trail work. So biking in, e-biking in, and/or Moto’ing in is recommended as it’s a haul to get up there! Walrod Rd is a high clearance road, so if you need to bike or hike in, CBMBA will bring your camping and working gear in for you! As part of your RSVP, let us know if we can help get your gear in. Parking for those who need to bike or hike in can be done across the way from the main Walrod parking area. Signs will be present to direct you – see maps below. Please do RSVP for the headcount/food count, as well as if we can help you by getting your gear in for you.
What To Bring: Work gloves, long pants, hat, boots or sturdy shoes, backpack for items you want on the trail, water and snacks for Saturday (we recommend you carry 2 liters on trail), sunscreen, camping gear and warm clothes for Saturday night. Lots of water – can’t have enough! Bring enough food outside of the meals that Rim Tours will provide.
What We Supply: Tools, water at the campsite, Saturday dinner, Sunday breakfast, Sunday lunch, beer, campsite, backcountry bathrooms.
Don’t miss this family-friendly community event! Camping is optional but encouraged. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you intend to camp and/or have meals with us so we can plan accordingly.
