Save the Date, Ralph’s Trail build, May 20th

In the Summer/Fall of 2017 Ralph and I had an idea…build a trail that would connect the “south parking area” to the Hill Trail \ Hill Bypass Trail. This would then enable us to avoid riding through the field to get to HT & HBPT. The thought was let’s just drop down into the ravines a bit and follow the contours to HT & HBPT. The original name we came up with was “The Contour Trail”. It would be a tough trail to build.

The time has now come that we can build this trail. The Friends of Dufferin County Forest group (FDCF) has been formed which is the organization we will work under. The proposed trail is approximately 1.5 km’s and will have some challenging sections to build. Lots of bench cutting and tricky topography to work around. The trail build is open to everyone that wishes to participate in any capacity they wish. Whether you have tools and trail building experience or have never built trail before it does not matter. There will be work and a task for everyone. Start time will be 8am and we hope to complete the trail in a day.

Lunch will be provided by Team Van Go (likely Pizza!).

If you are interested in helping it is very important that you RSVP as I will need to know who will be coming out for the day. You can contact me however you like (e-mail is best) and also use the “Contact” tab above to e-mail me.

This will be “Ralph’s Trail” and he’d love for you to be a part of it.

Please feel free to pass this on to anyone you know (other clubs, FB, other users) that would be interested in participating. I will be providing more detail as the date draws closer.
