It’s a jungle out there!
Long days, warm temps, and days of rain create the perfect conditions for explosive plant growth, and our beloved singletrack is becoming overgrown.
We’ll be scheduling trail work sessions in the coming days, but it’s a busy time of year and organized work days don’t always work with everyone’s schedule. All of the land managers that we work with on our chapter trails allow (and encourage!) our members to trim back growth on our trails using loppers and hand trimmers. You don’t need permission, and you can do it on your own time.
There’s a guide to trail trimming available here that might help you get started.
