We had a trail work day a couple of weeks ago on the Cannon Township property and we started building a new trail that is half way between Cannonsburg Ski Area and Luton Park. I think we completed about half of the work and I would like to get this finished up at our next trail day if possible. I think the trail we cut so far is pretty cool. This will be a nice addition to the area and a cool trail to ride while riding between the Game Area or Ski Area and Luton.
Meet at the township hall on the South East corner of Belding road and Myers Lake at 9:00 AM. (Cannon Township Center 6878 Belding Road NE Rockford, MI 49341). We'll provide a short safety talk and some instructions as to what to do, no prior trail building experience is necessary, all are welcome!
Bring water, loppers and rakes if you have them and as many friends as you can round up. We will work until 12:30 or so and lunch will be provided. If we're close to finishing up the trail we might go back out after lunch for a while also so if you can't make it in the morning, come on out for the afternoon shift. Last time Merrell came out and gave out some nice technical hats and some clever bottle opener key chains made from bike chains and sprockets. They also had a drawing for a $110 gift certificate for some shoes that someone won and they provided the lunch for us. I'm not sure yet if we can get them out there to help out again or not but I'll try.
