We Can't Do It Without You! Think of the hours of enjoyment you get from using trails maintained and developed by local riders with a passion... on a volunteer basis only. Now, just set aside a couple hours a season to pay your dues. It's a great way to learn the trails and to meet others while contributing to a great cause that you and the community benefit from. There is no better pleasure than riding a trail that you have helped build or maintain.
Trail Work You don't need to be a pro to help out. We've have experienced trail builders that lead trail crews and teach trail maintenance.
Donations Instead of purchasing lumber, nails, tools, and more... if you have scraps and tools in good shape that can be used on the trails, let us know. Are you replacing an old deck? Old decking is perfect material for building bridging over wet spots in the woods.
Administration Getting your hands dirty might not be your thing, but helping out on the Admin side might be. Let us know how you might be able to help!
