Hole-in-the-Ground and MTB Tahoe 2013

Over the weekend, some of NorCal's finest mountain bike clubs convened for days of excellent volunteer trailwork and fantastic riding as part of MTB Tahoe 2013. Our trailwork effort focused on Hole-in-the-Ground Trail near Truckee, CA. We implemented features near Andesite Peak to improve water runoff and sustainability for this popular trail.

Participating groups included Tahoe National Forest, Truckee Donner Land Trust, FATRAC, ROMP, MORCA, BONC, MCBC, BTCEB, and San Jose Meet Up.

A big thank you to Deschutes Brewery (beer donation), REI, Tahoe Daves and Olympic Bikes.

Hirschmans Trail Volunteer Effort

We had a fun, super efficient trail volunteer event on the Hirschman's Trail Saturday.  About 25 of us worked to rock armor and place gravel upon the Woods Ravine spur. This section has clay soil that becomes a mess after rain. We laid down gravel over 1/4 mile of the trail so it should hold up quite well to traffic and weather in the future.

Thank you to all our great volunteers, especially the wonderful kids who pitched in and made us smile. Kudos to Bill Haire and the Bear Yuba Land Trust for letting us improve a another part of the very popular trail.
