New Year, New Schedule

In case you haven’t heard, MWBA has made the commitment to do trail work at least once a month this year. Mark your calendars for the 3rd weekend of every month. We will publish the details each month, but expect to find us on one of our local San Gabriel Mountain trails. Along with our scheduled monthly trail days, Banner Moffat continues to work on El Prieto on Fridays. Feel free to send us an email if you can’t make it on the weekends, but have time on Fridays.

For most of 2014, we’ve been working closely with our sister organization, CORBA to get Strawberry Peak in riding shape. Rumor has it, it will finally be re-opened in May! Thank you to all  of the great volunteers who have come out and broken a sweat to make this happen!

Lastly, we are working to get Sunset back in decent condition. Our goal is to create sustainable trails that can weather through the rain storms. We are grateful that with the expert help from CORBA, the switchbacks we’ve worked on to date are, for the most part, still intact and rideable. There are 2 switchbacks on the second half of the trail that needs our armored love. Thanks to MWBA member and volunteer, Erik Hillard, we were able to spend a Friday morning digging in the dirt and moving rocks around. Let us know what you think! Also if you see a section of trail anywhere in the San Gabriel Mountains that need some attention, please email us or contact us on Facebook!
