MCBC Trail Stewards Volunteers Put the Finishing Touches on Eagle Rim Trail on Mt. Burdell
Over the last few weeks, 40 volunteers took advantage of rare spells of dry weather to care for the places we ride.
On Sunday, March 24, MCBC Trail Stewards joined Marin County Open Space District’s trail crew to complete the bench cut of the new Eagle Rim Trail exit onto Deer Camp Fire Road on Mount Burdell. Volunteers also started work on a bermed turn, created a kicker B-line (a more challenging line option), and did rock work to keep people from short-cutting a switchback.
The trail should be officially open in the next few weeks, assuming the rain stops! We’ll follow with an announcement when it’s ready.
Students & Parents revive Lagunitas school pump track
On Saturday, March 30, a crew of 20 students and parents cleaned up and enhanced the Lagunitas School pump track, which needed some TLC following the long, wet winter. Thanks to Rowan Black for organizing the workday and bringing donuts for the crew!
The pump track was built by volunteers for the school kids, but is open to the general public on weekends and after school on weekdays.
There will be another workday this Spring to dial in the rollers and berms. Watch for details in the coming weeks.
