Join Roanoke County and fellow trail enthusiasts at Explore Park for a day of giving back to our public lands. The project will be to reroute a section of the Yellow Trail between Chestnut Ridge Road and the Blue Ridge Bike Park. We will be constructing about 700 feet of new bench cut trail and a climbing turn, replacing several eroded sections and a series of steep switch backs.
DETAILS: Sign in and day of registration will be between 8:30 and 9am at the RV lot across from the Explore Park Visitor’s Center before heading to the worksite. No trail building experience necessary, just a willingness to learn and an ability to work hard. Dress appropriate for the weather, but long pants are encouraged. Boots are recommended, closed toe-shoes are required. Bring work gloves and water, Virginia’s Blue Ridge will be providing lunch and t-shirts for pre-registrants. Work should be concluded by 1pm.
