Red Rock Ranger District and Verde Valley Cyclists Rust Bucket Trail Day

January 9th, 2013

COME WORK ON THE RUST BUCKET TRAIL!

The Verde Valley Cyclists Coalition is sponsoring a work day on the Rust Bucket Trail north of Dead Horse State Park. Come help out!!
When: Saturday, Jan. 19th – 0930 AM – 3PM  (if weather looks “iffy” call Lars Romig for last minute confirmation 301-7792)
Where: meet at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church parking lot
700 North Bill Gray Road, Cottonwood, AZ (just off of SR89A)

We will car pool in as the road requires a high clearance vehicle.

Volunteers need to come prepared and bring with them: a helmet if available, eye protection, work gloves, drinking water, lunch, sun screen, a hat, long sleeved shirt, long pants, and wear boots with ankle support.

The Rust Bucket Trail was approved as a Forest Service trail in 2012. Trail work will include reroutes for sustainability and better trail “flow”.

Subaru-IMBA Trail Care Crew: Cottonwood, AZ
Great news the Trail Care Crew is coming to Dead Horse State Park February 21st to the 24th. VVCC applied jointly with the USFS and will be working on the new Lower Bones Trail. Come join in the fun! Also any city, county and forest folk from Verde Valley cities/agencies are urged to come to the presentations and trail building to learn the value of sustainable trails.
The Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew, on the road since 1997, is IMBA’s grassroots educational program and an authority on sustainable trail building practices. Two teams of professional trail experts travel year-round throughout the United States and beyond, leading trail work sessions, meeting with land managers and working with IMBA-affiliated clubs and the communities they serve to improve mountain biking opportunities. The Trail Care Crew program has inspired great volunteer trail work across the U.S. and abroad – a big help to government agencies and land managers who have limited funding for trail construction and upkeep. As a direct result, there are new and improved trails in all 50 states, Canada, Mexico and several European countries.
