First OFFICIAL Workday

The FIRST workday for the hand cut sections of our new trail will be Saturday August 9th. We will leave out from J.Craig Smith Community Center, 2 West 8th street in Sylacauga, by 8 am. Please anyone available come and bring gloves, shovels, landscape axes, etc. Also bring safety glasses and a hard hat if you have one. We should have a few from the Rangers gear for those who don't. Please come help kick this off, it will be something to be proud of. We hope the trail will be in good shape for riding by around Oct. 1st.

Holding pattern

We are still patiently waiting for the trail building to begin. Plans are still for September. Summer growth has slowed down some of our trail activity but an old trail has been opened up making an interesting loop of our existing trails. With the coming of Fall we will be able to open these up better and get the trails "ridden in". Only one bridge left to build to protect sensitive drainage and we are a go. With the building of the Lake Howard portion, interest in these other routes should really help keeping them clear.
