Goal: Maintain hiking, biking, and horse trails.
Occasion: The event previously known as Biketoberfest.
Description: Your chance to give back... We hike, bike, and ride horses on these trails that seemingly are just there.
Specifics: We're setting out to work on the more difficult trails. The trails we are going to maintain are just outside of Bend, but at around 6500 ft. Come prepared to move dirt with heavy duty hoes and rakes at a higher altitude closer to the Cascade crest.
Organization: You will be organized through COTA's event previously known as Biketoberfest. COTA will provide the tools. COTA will also provide the after party. Once you've signed in we'll carpool to the work site. Once there, we will proceed under Todd's leadership to perform trail work. Todd has the experience and know-how to build, clear, and maintain trails.
Meetup Location: We will meet 8:30 am at the *west end* of the Old Mt Bachelor Parking lot. If we're not obvious, please look for an older tan Chevy S10 pickup truck and silver Ford Fiesta. If you don't see us right away, go ahead and sign up, get some light breakfast, and meet us at the west end for car pooling. We'll be driving up road 370 from Todd Lake in late fall conditions, which can include mud, snow, and sometimes limited ice. Vehicles with clearance and traction are preferred.
What To Bring: Wear boots, long pants, long sleeves, and have eye protection handy. Bring work gloves and be prepared for chilly weather, rain, slush, or snow. Gaiters are useful for keeping dirt out of your boots. COTA will provide the tools.
This will be our third year supporting The Event Formerly known as Biketoberfest through meetup.com. Last year's work on Todd's team was great fun - the Metolius-Windigo trail had light snow making for excellent working conditions:
