Trail day again this Saturday, May 12 from 9- noon. Bring gloves, water and bug spray. I also suggest long pants as there is plenty of poison ivy!

June Merrell Trails work nights:
We plan to meet on Wednesday nights during the month of June from 5:30-8:30 pm. There is a lot of work yet to be done to get this trail ready to ride. Can you commit to at least one of these dates? There may be some additional opportunities as need arises. Be sure to check on facebook or at wmmba.org.
Please meet at the gate to the transfer station and we will go back to the trail site as a group. Since we go back together, please be at the gate on time otherwise you won't be able to get it in. Please eat or snack before arriving water and bring long pants, gloves and bug spray.

We will also be working with Alex of Spectrum Trail Designs on weekdays from 8am-5pm starting July 12th-23rd. If you can come out during the daytime hours and lend a hand that would be awesome.
