A dedicated crew rallied for the June 23 work day and tread development is under way on the Super Connector trail between Knebal and Surveyor’s on the Barlow Ranger District, Mt Hood National Forest. Despite the lingering affects of the Hood River Classic party on Saturday night, the crew put in a good day developing over a mile of trail. Thanks to Dog River Coffee for the morning Java to help motivate the crew and thanks to Mother Nature for the light rain to help keep the dirt in fine form.
The Super Connector trail is NOT yet open for riding, but the next trail work day to get one step closer is July 14. Mark your calendars and stay tuned for details about a possible breakfast ride extravaganza with the Dirty Fingers crew before the trail work begins . . .
Check out this vid from our friends at Central Oregon Trail Alliance (COTA). 44 Trails Association will be posting some “Two-way traffic, yield to up-hill traffic” signs on the National Forest trails around the 44 network during future trail projects. Speaking of future trail projects, future project dates will be posted soon . . .
A big thanks to everyone who rallied to help with the Super Connector trail work day on June 1. It was a beautiful day in the hills and we successfully brushed the new trail, which will eventually connect the Knebal/Dakine trail to Surveyors Ridge.
The afternoon fundraising event at Dirty Fingers and 10-Speed Coffee brought together more folks with live music from Cripple Hop, beer and wine sales plus a silent auction to benefit trail development. Thanks to all who attended the events!
Stay tuned for the next trail day (late June sometime) where we’ll begin tread work and bring the Super Connector one step closer to riding.
