There are goats?! Can I have a ride??

An 8 mile dirt road drive via 4x4 vehicles and a 30 minute walk out into oblivion was not enough to deflate the volunteers, and goats, in Nevada City this weekend.  We were very impressed by the determination to put trail down that was displayed from most during this build.

We rerouted a much needed section of fall line boulder field trail, replacing it with flowing switchbacks that even includes a berm turn with an impressive retaining wall that was constructed by some of the youngest of our volunteers. Most trail days, for us, are from 1-4pm or 5pm at the latest, this crew was more than willing to work 9am to after 4pm on Saturday and then head back out the next morning at 8am for more building.

Special thanks to our host Jon for helping us out whenever needed, and to Jet with the Forest Service for being the barer of meals that were donated by REI and for being the “gatekeeper”. Props to all the Forest Service members who came out to help build this weekend! This was a great show of support! Duane (A.K.A Bike shop owner/The Mayor), you rock, it’s nice to see the community in the good hands of a bike shop owning mountain biker. Duane owns Tour of Nevada City Bike Shop, go see him!

Thank you to all our volunteers and BONC for coming out and hustling to build the longest reroute we’ve put down as TCC to date. Finally, thank you to the two goats that carried heavy stuff for us all day :)
