So Many Trail Work Volunteer Opportunities!

May 6, 2017

In the next two weeks we have SIX trail construction and maintenance opportunities for you. Please consider joining us for one or more of these events and help improve our trail system.

[] Weekday construction opportunities on Valley View Trail and Sidewinder: This week (29 May) a volunteer will bring his Alaskan sawmill out to the Valley View trail to help create some log rides on the new section of Valley View. Next week (5 June) we’ll continue work on a log ride complex on Sidewinder. Click here for more details.

[] Saturday, 3 June is National Trails Day.  In celebration of this, TAMBA is hosting a giant work day in cooperation with the Biggest Little Trail Stewardship and the Tahoe Rim Trail Association to repair winter damage to Thomas and Whites Creek trails in Galena. This massive event runs 8:30 to 12:30. Click here for more details. Pre-registration is required as we are limited to 70 people.  Snacks , drinks and other goodies will be provided.

[] Sunday, 4 June, 9am to 1pm, TAMBA will hold its first solo volunteer day of the year complete with food and drink at the Valley View Trail near Tahoe Mountain. This legacy trail was adopted by the Forest Service after the Angora Fire, but during the past six months the trail sustain considerable erosion making the lower part unrideable. As a result, the TAMBA volunteers worked with the Forest Service to realign the damaged section. This new alignment includes better flow, new rock sections, and some big log rides. Meet us at 9am at the Angora Ridge trailhead on Tahoe Mountain Rd across from Forest Mountain Dr.

[] Sunday, 11 June, 9am to 1pm, lower Corral Trail realignment. Everyone’s favorite trail gets another upgrade starting the week of 5 June when the Forest Service cuts a new alignment of the lower runout section of Corral Trail. TAMBA will work on new flow and bermed features starting 9am on Sunday, 11 June. Meet us at the lower parking area on Fountain Place Rd (continuation of Oneidas Rd). We’ll have more details as the event gets nearer.
