Vasa Skillz Building Trail Work Bees

July 13 @ 8:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 4 weeks that begins at 8:00 am on Saturday, repeating until August 3, 2019

TART Trails is excited to get to work on building a 2-mile skill-building trail course designed for beginners and youth to learn how to mountain bike. Please join us for a volunteer work bee!

The proposed project plan is to hand and machine build two mountain bike “skill building” singletrack loops on the forty acre Vasa Pathway. Trail construction will include clearing the trail route/ 6’ wide corridor, constructing a 4’ wide tread, supplementing existing soils with suitable fill materials and constructing berms, roll and jump features.

This project, including the construction and continued maintenance, is a partnership between TART Trails and  Northern Michigan Mountain Bike Association. Learn more about the project here.

  • Saturday, July 13 / 8:00-11:00 am – 12 ppl to clear Blue Loop corridor with handsaws, loppers, weed trimmers and rakes. Also, 2 people to operate walk behind tillers.
