Needs a location


Join CORBA and the Santa Monica Mountains Trails Council as we fix up the section of the Backbone Trail between Zuma Ridge Motorway and Kanan Road. We'll mostly be cutting back overgrowing brush, especially branches that are hanging down and make riders duck as they go by. After the trailwork is finished, CORBA will have prizes for some (or all) lucky volunteers, and treat you to lunch afterwards.

No experience is necessary to help out with trailwork. Tools and instructions on how to use them safely and effectively will be provided. Must be 18+ years of age. And you don't need to be a mountain biker to help out - Everybody is welcome! For more information on trailwork in general, visit our trail crew web page (

Be sure to wear protective clothing (sturdy shoes, long pants and sleeves, hat, golves) and bring snacks, sunscreen and water. CORBA will provide the tools and training.

We request that you pre-register (by RSVPing "Yes") so that we'll know how many tools to provide. Remember, by registering here, CORBA will treat you to lunch afterwards, and enter you in the drawing for mountain biking prizes! We have some great 2.25" CST tires, for both 26ers and 29ers.

CORBA's thank-you lunch will be after trailwork ends at 2:00 pm, so bring some snacks to tide you over.

Meet at the dirt pullout overflow parking area about 1/2 mile north of Tunnel 1 on Kanan Rd. We'll be shuttling from there to the work area, so don't be late!

Directions: From the 101 Freeway in Agoura, drive south on Kanan Road 7.6 miles and pull into the dirt parking at the right side of the road. If you reach the paved Backbone Trail parking area, or Tunnel 1, you've gone about ½ miles too far.

From the PCH, turn north onto Kanan Dume Rd and drive 4.7 miles to the dirt parking area on the left, about ½ miles after Tunnel 1.
