Hole in the Ground Trail Volunteer Weekend

Date

Time

8:30 am – 4:00 pm PDT

Where

Hole in the Ground Trail, Interstate 80, Donner Summit, CA

Event description

Truckee… The Forest Service and the Truckee Trails Foundation are jointly hosting a Hole in the Ground Trail Volunteer Weekend, August 18th-19th. The Hole in the Ground Trail is a popular mountain biking trail on Donner Summit. Volunteer participants will work under direction from local Forest Service and trail advocate crew leaders. Novice trail volunteers are welcome! All volunteers should bring sturdy shoes, sunscreen, water, lunch, and appropriate clothing for a full day (or two!) of trail work. We will be meeting at the I-80 Pacific Crest Trailhead (Boreal/Castle Valley Exit) at 8:30 AM and will be working until 4:00 PM both days. Interested volunteers must pre-register for this event with the Truckee Trails Foundation. This event is free and open to the public. Please contact Allison Pedley at the Truckee Trails Foundation with questions and/or to register: allison@truckeetrails.org.

Volunteers will complete such tasks as brushing, drainage work, tread enhancement and repair, and even a minor re-route. To complete the remaining deferred maintenance on the Hole in the Ground Trail, the Forest Service received a $14,000 grant from the Nevada and Placer County Resource Advisory Committee. Utilizing the grant funding, the Forest Service developed a participating agreement with American Conservation Experience (ACE) to complete the necessary trail maintenance. ACE’s trail corps crews, under direction from Tahoe National Forest Trail Technicians, will begin three weeks of trail maintenance activities starting August 20th, 2012. Many local businesses and non-profit partners supported this grant including: TAMBA, FATRAC, Ace Mountain Hardware, The Backcountry, Truckee Donner Land Trust and Truckee Trails Foundation. “We are excited to host the trail weekend and to have such an outpouring of support from the community to maintain this popular mountain biking trail,” stated Joanne Roubique, Truckee District Ranger.
