Swope Trails Work Day, November 6

Rancho D-Lux (easier/faster trail) has been growing steadily for the last couple years...here's your chance to pitch in for the final push to complete the Ranch D-Lux loop.   We hope to have the full loop done sometime this winter and already have a good chunk of corridor and bench work started.

This Saturday we will be doing corridor clearing, destaubing, and dirt/rock work. If it's your 1st time or you're a master trailbuilder come out...we have lots of work to do and will have something for everyone.

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 page for directions to the Swope Park trails.

The usual trail tools...Rakes, Shovels, McLeods, Pulaskis, Rogue Hoes, Weedeaters, Blowers, 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!

Schedule of Events:
9am-12pm Trailbuilding

12pm-1pm: Lunch...Johnnies Tavern and Sysco will be providing burgers and chips after the workday. EarthRiders will be grilling them up, so plan to stick around for a while even if you can't ride.

1pm-4pm: Ride come and go as you please

Some of us are having a campout at the Hogan Saturday night if you want to join us.
