Details

Get your PayDirt hours before the deadline (May 6th). The Slaughter Creek Trail needs some TLC. Here is an opportunity to give back to the trail we all ride.

What we'll do
We will be clearing face slappers and eye pokers from the trail. If there are enough volunteers we will move dirt to fill in the low areas on the trail and cover roots.

We will be doing tread work, removing invasive trees from the trail path, cutting weeds / tree limbs. Wear closed toes shoes and work / weather appropriate clothes. Children are OK with parental supervision. There is some poison ivy so cover up if you are allergic.

We are scheduling workdays so racers can get their 2019 Paydirt hours before the deadline. Don't get caught by the May 6th deadline.

• What to bring
Bring gloves and water (Camelbak or water bottle). ARR will provide tools (wheelbarrow, saws, loppers, shovels, etc.) and some gloves. Bring your own tools if you prefer your own. Bring your Pay Dirt form if you need Pay Dirt hours.

• Important to know

We will meet in the parking lot for a safety briefing. All volunteers meet at the parking lot.

Please sign our on-line waiver here:

All minors need an adult to sign their waiver.
