SAVE THE DATE: Trailwork Day @ Swope, November 3rd

TRAILBUILDING...It's getting to be that time of the year again and your belly will be full of Halloween candy. This could be a great way to burn off that nervous sugar energy.

We will be finishing up the Rancho-d-lux loop on November 3rd. This will be the final phase of Rancho which will clean up several intersections, eliminate some legacy trail, and make a kid's specific loop. We are very excited about how this will make the upper area of Camp Lake of the Woods flow for all users.

Once this section is complete we will be spending the remainder of the winter on working on the Wudchuk Run loop connecting the Eight Pin across the back of the Camp Lake of the Woods Property to the Red Cabin area. This will probably be a 2yr project and add 4-6 miles to the Camp Lake of the Woods area.

Meeting Place:
Hogan/swimming pool at Camp Lake of the Woods on top of the hill. From the main Swope trailhead, drive up Oakwood Drive, take a left at the "Y" and continue on about 300 yards. See map on the right hand side of the age for directions to the Swope Park trails.

The usual trail tools...Rakes, Shovels, McLeods, Pulaskis, Rogue Hoes, Handsaws, Chainsaws, etc. If you don't have tools, come anyway...we should have plenty.

Recommended Clothing:
Long pants
Boots/Shoes with protection
Work Gloves
Safety Glasses
Bug Spray

Trail Tasting Afterwards:
If the trails are rideable and/or hikeable, we'll do a trail tasting of the new stuff. Workdays are the only time you'll get a chance to check out the new trail before it's open, so come work then get your ride on!
