We hope all our mountain bikers are enjoying the trails! We love seeing the trails getting a lot of use and are excited at the continued growth of our mountain biking program.
As we're sure you've seen during your visits, the trails require ongoing maintenance in the form of mowing, weed whacking, clearing of downed trees, and many other tasks. Most of these tasks are being regularly performed by a small but dedicated group of volunteers, who could use some help.
Here are some available opportunities. We would really appreciate it if you're able to find time to join one or more of these work days. Sign up here or at the link below.
Thursday "Work Hour" (EVERY Thursday, from 5:30-6:30 PM) – Mike Dobrient leads this work hour to handle miscellaneous tasks every Thursday. We shoot for this to be a brief but impactful weekly activity. Please consider meeting Thursdays at the large garage at the bottom of the property. If you arrive late, we'll leave a note where to find the group.
Pleasant View Work Day - Saturday, October 9 (8 AM - Noon) Please consider joining in to help maintain the Pleasant View trails that you enjoy as part of your riding experience at Blackhawk.
Blackhawk Fall Work Day - Saturday, October 23 (9 AM - 2 PM) Please join for big day of serious work. We will have several teams tackle various trail projects such as
o building sign stands
o define and clarify round of Springs Trail starting at bottom of Be Happy
o De-berm and improve water management in some areas with runoff issues
Blackhawk is a member-based organization, and volunteerism is one of our core beliefs. We want members to feel personally invested in the quality of the grounds they enjoy riding. To join the crew at these upcoming events, please use the link below:
