Build days for the new flow trail at Tamarancho have been officially posted, as well as build days for trail maintenance for the main loop. If you’re interested in having any input into the trail, we recommend you attend, as paying for a pass simply provides you with access to the trail. If you aren’t familiar with the history of the single track loop at Tamarancho here’s a brief recap courtesy of Danny Forer via Friends of Tamarancho:
The trails at Tamarancho were built over a 6-year period by local volunteer cyclists. The construction was paid for and coordinated by the Bicycle Trails Council of Marin (BTC), with president Jim Jacobsen supervising the project.
Each year since the construction, BTC coordinates trail work days to maintain and improve the trails. This involves improving drainage, cutting back foliage, removing invasive plants, building bypass trails and more.
You don’t need to be an experienced trail builder to help, but be sure to arrive in suitable work clothes, sturdy shoes and gloves. Tools, snacks and drinks will be supplied. Saturday dates will focus on existing trail maintenance, while Sundays will focus on the construction of the new Flow Trail. <UPDATE: the Flow Trail will be getting worked on Saturdays as well, so if you were interested in primarily helping with the flow trail, we can use more bodies!>
Saturdays and Sundays, January 5 & 6, January 12 & 13, January 19 & 20, and January 26 & 27.
Saturday trail work starts at 10 a.m. and meets in the center of camp.
Flow trail work starts at 9:30 a.m. and meets at the junction of Broken Dam and B-17 trails.
You can drive up to the center of camp or ride your bike. Give yourself ample time to get to meeting location.
Steady rain cancels.
If you ride Tamarancho regularly we also recommend purchasing an annual pass as well.
