Great turnout for the UMBA trail care day
What a great turnout for the UMBA trail care day!! I counted 17 people in all, plus one dog. Not only did all of you show up, but everyone put forth a great effort and we got a lot more accomplished than I expected. I truly appreciate all that you did. I would especially like to thank those of you from the Tarheel Trailblazers for bringing your tools and trail maintenance experience, and then sharing both so generously. It wouldn't have been the same without you!!

Saturday's efforts have given UMBA a great burst of momentum to move forward with. It reminds me a lot of the momentum created by the group of
21 that turned out for the very first UMBA meeting in 1996. From that surge of interest we were able to lay the groundwork for this trail system and open up the routes we have today. After the last few days, the future of these trails certainly looks brighter to me!

Tommy and I were able to examine Keyauwee with a more experienced eye as we rode through on Saturday afternoon. Another day's efforts with a crew half that size should allow us to address most of the similar drainage issues on Keyauwee. And from there? Only time will tell what great things will develop for and around this trail system.
