Glenrock Trail Alliance will be holding a workday on Saturday Dec. 8 Meet on-site at 9.30am.

We will be doing some patch-up work on Kenny’s Trail just around the big tree stump where the exposed tree roots have become an erosion and safety issue. There are a few other drainage and puddle issues around the area that we may have time to fix as well.

We’re not planning on making this a major re-build day. It’s just an informal kind of thing so we don’t need a lot of volunteers and hope to have it all done by midday.

The next Glenrock Trailwork day will be held on Saturday 15th of September.

We will be working in the area of Seismick Trail.
The work will be rebuilding the whole trail and in particular reshaping the berms. They will need to be hand packed with shovel and McLeod, so the more hands - the better.
The NPWS Field Officers have been on-site moving material to build this and we should be able to achieve a great result with substantially bigger berms – Oh yeah!
The NPWS Ranger, Kate will be providing a BBQ lunch for all volunteers to keep the energy levels up.

Next build day will be on Saturday the 23rd of June.

We will be working in the same area as last build day, the lower Clay Quarry.
Bad weather immediately after the work was done meant that the trails didn’t have a chance to pack down before it was impacted by torrential and on-going rain
This is not meant to be a big day and we are not planning to build any new trail or features, we are just doing a general tidy-up of the previous work and checking drainage.

No lunch or drinks will be supplied so please bring your own snacks and water.

Meet on-site at 9.30am

Bit of Casual Trailwork - Kenny's

Monday, 20 November, 2017 - 15:00

The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

Meeting Point: 

Kenny's Trail

Been really struggling to find time for a formal build day this month with so much happening in Newcastle.
As usual there are quite a few smaller jobs that need doing around the trails so I'm hoping to hold a couple of casual 'drop-in' style sessions of an afternoon this week.
At this stage I hope to be around the start of Kennys tomorrow (Monday 20.11.17) from about 3pm. The small drop-off after the first L hander needs rebuilding (again) and there are a few 'potholes' forming along the trail.
