    I'm assuming we are past Pay Dirt and this is a call for trail goodness in itself?

    Never-mind. Answered. Hopefully, we can make it out Wed.

    We will be mowing and trimming the trail on Friday 5/12/2017 during the day. Most people will be working so we will not be posting this one to Meetup. We plan to start about 9:00 AM from the mountain bike parking lot. Join in on the fun if you can.

    Here is a work day on a brand new trail! The East Williamson Creek Greenbelt Nature Trail has just been approved in time for National Trails Day (June 3rd). Come help us clear the trail corridor for a new trail. More info at https://austinparks.givepulse.com/ev...-Trail-Opening Please sign up on the GivePulse site.

    This trail may seem like a waste to some people. It will not be a destination trail like Walnut or Pace Bend. This will be a connector trail that forms an 'off road loop' around the entire City of Austin. Over time, this piece will connect to the South Austin Trail Network that already exists. It is a couple of blocks from where Travis County is planning the Onion Creek Trail which will connect to the Southern Walnut Creek Trail to the Northern Walnut Creek Trail. Tie all of those to the Shoal Creek Trail and the Violet Crown Trail and we will have an off road loop around Austin!

    ARR - Walnut Creek Work Day 5/22/2017 at 6:00 PM

    Meeting at 6:00 at the parking lot. After 6:00 we will be working due east of the parking lot on the new trail. I know this is short notice but the dirt is PERFECT to work and the weather forecast looks good for tonight.

    Wear long pants and sturdy boots and bring water (camelbak or water bottle). Bring work gloves if you have them. ARR will be providing tools (buckets, wheelbarrows, shovels) but if you have your own, feel free to bring them. And the TMBRA racers can get ahead of next year's PayDirt! To get credit for pay dirt, you need to download and fill out there form <a href="http://www.austinridgeriders.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/paydirtform.pdf"></a>http://www.austinridgeriders.com/wp-...rtform.pdfhere.

    Austin Water Quality Protection staff has approved the work day for 6/10/17 at 9:00 AM! Check back here before you drive out. We may cancel if the weather looks bad. (Rain date is currently scheduled for 6/17/17.) Details at https://www.meetup.com/mountainbikes...nts/240410966/

    We will be filling in the trail tread where it has worn away. We started this work in the fall and didn't get it all done it that one work day. We will be using our trucks to move dirt from one side of the preserve to the other side where the trail is badly cupped. I will be looking for a few pick ups that don't mind hauling dirt across the 'dirt roads'.

    Meeting at 9:00 AM at the the parking lot. After 9:00 we will be closing the trail (gate). The trail will open again at ~1:00 so we need to clear out by then.

    Wear long pants and sturdy boots and bring water (camelbak or water bottle). Bring work gloves if you have them. ARR will be providing tools (shovels, picks, wheel barrows, loppers, saws, etc) but if you have your own, feel free to bring them. To get credit for pay dirt, you need to download and fill out the form <a href="http://www.austinridgeriders.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/paydirtform.pdf"></a>http://www.austinridgeriders.com/wp-...rtform.pdfhere. You can get ahead of next years Pay Dirt starting now.

    Austin Ridge Riders Tail Crew sessions for Tuesday and Wednesday evening are ON. There is much to be done to get the trails at Walnut back in shape after the rains. Drainage needs to be restored where it has been blocked by debris and fallen branches so that the trails can dry up once the sun starts to shine.

    Please consider coming out Tuesday and/or Wednesday evening for a quick 2 hours of trail restoration. https://www.meetup.com/mountainbikes...nts/242750482/
