For SWAMP maintained mountain bike trails
How can You Volunteer Your Help?
Take a Saturday in the next few weeks to volunteer some trail work hours (See Calendar OR look for the workdays on our Events list) and join SWAMP in maintaining these trails. You'll get some exercise in the fresh air, chat with people that you only nod to on ride days, and contribute to the sport that you love. No experience necessary, all tools are provided and any parking fees are waived for those who send early RSVP's.
Those who are able to volunteer 20 hours or more during the year are eligible for SWAMP awards given out during the December Holiday meeting.
Remember, these are OUR trails. There are no "Trail Gnomes"! The Park Rangers do not maintain these Off Road Trails...we do. How well would our bikes function without maintenance???? The trails need maintenance too!
So, please come out and help....
