Join CORBA, GirlzGoneRiding (http://www.girlzgoneriding.com/), the Santa Monica Mountains Trails Council and others as we repair the trail damage caused by the recent Springs Fire. Initial efforts will focus on removing debris from the trails (fallen trees, rocks, small landslides, etc) so they can be safely used by park visitors. Later work will involve repairing drainage so that rainwater running off the denuded hillsides will not wash the trails away.
The trail we work on will be determined by State Park Staff a few days beforehand. This is the second of two work days we are scheduling to help fix up the trails.
After the trailwork is finished, CORBA will have prizes for some (or all) lucky volunteers, and treat you to lunch after that.
No experience is necessary to help out with trailwork. Tools and instructions on how to use them safely and effectively will be provided. Children must be over 7-years old to attend, and children under 14 must be constantly and directly supervised by their parent or guardian who brought them. 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 (http://corbamtb.com/programs/trail-crew.shtml).
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.
We will meet at the dirt parking area at the south end of Wendy Dr (at Potrero Rd) in Newbury park and will caravan into the park from there.
Directions: From the 101 Freeway, take the Wendy Drive exit in Newbury Park. Drive south 3 miles to parking at Potrero Road.
