Trailworkers Tune Up an IMBA Epic Trail
The Disciples of Dirt trailwork party at the Horse Creek Lodge on Memorial Day weekend was an amazingly fun and hugely productive event. In the continued reclamation of this IMBA Epic trail, 38 trail workers headed out on Saturday to buck trees, bench tread, bank turns, and brush back vegetation on the O’Leary Trail. On Sunday smaller crews spent the day on Castle Rock Trail brushing, benching, and buffing out that section of the loop. Over the course of the weekend our trail volunteers logged a whopping 350 hours of work!
This event was truly a community effort. The McKenzie Chamber, along with the folks at the Horse Creek Lodge, accommodated and fed everyone. Tyson Cross of the USFS McKenzie District came up with a detailed “battle plan” and organized the work crews. And volunteers from DOD and GOATS showed up in force to put their backs and strong arms into making this wild and beautiful trail system more accessible … and even more fun to ride!
