Austin Ridge Riders and Lumber Society are building a NEW Trail on the Country Club Creek Greenbelt. This is near downtown Austin about 2 miles south of Buzz Mill. We have cleared the entire corridor so it is rideable now. We need to open up the tight spots and start working the tread.
What we'll do
We will be building new trail. Trail has been rough cleared and needs more stumps removed and to be opened up. We will also be starting work on the tread by moving organic matter and starting berms and such.
We will be doing corridor clearing work, removing invasive trees from the trail path, cutting weeds / tree limbs. Wear closed toes shoes and work / weather appropriate clothes. Children are OK with parental supervision. There is some poison ivy so cover up if you are allergic.
• What to bring
Bring gloves and water (Camelbak or water bottle). ARR will provide tools (saws, loppers, shovels, etc.) and some gloves. Bring your own tools if you prefer your own. Bring your Pay Dirt form if you need Pay Dirt hours.
BRING A BIKE! We are encouraging people to start riding it. That is how we find places that need work. Prefer you ride before or after trail work but some people ride during.
