Rattling Creek workdays

Rattling Creek work days will be on Sat June 21 from 10:30AM-3PM and Sun June 22 from 9AM-1PM. Meeting place will be at the snowmobile parking lot at the bottom of  White Oak Road (2800 White Oak Rd, Halifax PA 17032) and we will walk to the trail from there. We will be working on the Wolf Pond reroute, which once finished will be 2 miles of new downhill (and uphill) singletrack. This is a joint work day with SAMBA and Friends of Weiser. Sat will be led by Jim Theurer and Sunday will be led by Shawn Withers. We will provide tools (if you have your own please bring along), water and snacks. Please come out and help as little or as much as your schedule allows, a few hours, one day, or both days!!

Trail Work Day Sun Nov 18 Print E-mail
I know I mentioned an upcoming trail work day in my last post, and it looks like there is some interest in trying to put a last minute one together for this Sunday Nov 18.
The main focus is to install the new bridge treads on the large bridge on Rattling Creek Trail. The treads are already pre cut, we will need help getting the new treads down to the bridge, tearing the old treads off, installing the new ones, and getting the old ones back up to the road. It also sounds like most of the downed trees are on Doc Smith, so we would like to get that trail cleared up. It won't take too many people to get this all done in a short period of time, the goal would be to meet around 8AM and be done by Noon. A few people for the deck project, and maybe 2 small crews for log cutting. Bring your bike to ride afterwards.
If we get lots of people coming to help, there are also a few spots that could really use some brush cutting, we could send a group with at least 1 brush cutter and maybe 2.
If you would like to help, please let us know in the comment section below.
