Trail Crew Work Report: July 28 – August 3, 2019

The trail crew took a much needed week off this past week. We still managed to get a few important tasks accomplished and will be back in full capacity this coming week. We want to thank this outstanding community for continuing to support the work that we do on your trails every day. It means the world to us and hopefully it helps facilitate a more robust and resilient public lands trail network in our backyard. We want to encourage and remind YOU to reach out and let us know any work you have done on our local trails (clearing brush, cutting out downed trees, tread work, wildlife conflicts, updated conditions, etc.). The more information we can pass along to the community, the better. Just email us at: info@mountainbiketetons.org anytime and we’ll include them in these weekly updates.

  • On Tuesday, Alec spent time pulling thistle and other weeds at the Victor Bike Park as well as cleaning up the tread on the pump track. That afternoon, he met with Nick Beatty from TVTAP to flag the new Happy Hour Trail in Southern Valley.
  • Thursday, Alec and Trail Ambassador Nate Carey installed a Dero Fix-It station at the Mike Harris Trailhead. Use the tools to quickly repair your bike and the pump to top off your tires before heading out for a ride in Southern Valley. Look for a few more of these to pop up in the coming year at other trailheads across Teton Valley! We’re excited to share these resources with the community!
  • On Thursday, Alec also made his way out to Corral Creek with the saw to cut out a tree that came down in one of our recent storms. Thanks Alec!
