River Bends Trail Day: October 28, 2012 @ 10am

Postby c0nsumer » October 19th, 2012, 6:16 pm

Please join CRAMBA at Shelby Township's River Bends Park on October 28, 2012 at 10am for a trail day.

During this time we will construct a .4 mile return trail leading back along a small ridge towards the trail head, ending directly across the two track from the single track entrance. This'll eliminate almost all of the two track and pavement when riding a lap of the mountain bike route at River Bends. For those of you familiar with the park, this Google Map shows a GPS trace of the proposed new route.

This work will involve clearing some thorny brush and a bit of bench cutting, so be sure to wear long sleeves, and meet at the trail head next to the main parking lot off of the 22 Mile Road entrance.

See you there, and please ask either in this thread or via email to info@cramba.org if you have any questions.

Is this route where there is somewhat of a worn path on the ridge over there or all new cut?

It'll be that small stub of single track on the ridge, then continuing along that ridge, then new stuff which'll eventually turn west and end across from the trailhead.

Sounds good. I plan on being there unless the wifey has me scheduled with something else that I'm unaware of...

That would be a scary sight for sure :shock: . Just in case you are wondering what saying means. This is one of the
origins. (American & Australian humorous) If you go somewhere or do something with bells on, you do it with a lot of interest and energy.)
