We're having a socially distanced work day this coming Saturday, November 14th.  We'll meet at 10am at the entrance to the jump/flow lines. We're gonna fix the drainage/puddle near there and tackle other maintenance too.

Let's kick off the new year by adding some singletrack to Salisbury Community Park.  We've gotten the ok to extend trail east of Casey Jones between the RR track and the creek.  We've flagged and started clearing two loops that'll add about 3/4 of a mile and we need your help to bring it online.  We're going to have socially distanced work days every every Saturday and Sunday remaining in January, so please come out and join us when you have the chance. There's also an opportunity to add even more trail this year, so stay tuned and sharpen your shovels.

I can't seem to upload the flyer, each work day is 10a-1p and we'll meet by the trail entrance near the lake and the bridge into Casey Jones.  Hope to see folks out there.

I rode this the other Saturday. Itís definitely new trail but fun. I especially like the crossings. I was planning on coming out but proceeded to eat it randomly and mostly just sore around the ribs and not recovering as quickly as I would likeóIíll be out helping some this year for sure. Salisbury Community Park has come a long way the last few years, and keeps getting better.

Apologies for the late notice, but we're having a work day on Saturday 3/6 from 10a-1p.  We'll meet at the lake parking lot.  On tap: drain clearing, working on the new loops east of Casey Jones, and scoping some re-routes to meld the Thunder Road & Turkey loops together. Bring your favorite tools and PPE.  Black tie is optional, but there may be a writer and photographer there for an upcoming Salisbury the Magazine article.   

Also of note: Let's Ride Rowan, a community cycling event will be held at SCP on 3/20. Here's a link to more info: (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links).  And here's some coverage in the Salisbury Post about it: (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links).  Love to see this kind of thing happening, this is how building trail translates into building community.

Guess I missed posting the last few work days, but we're continuing the process of combining the Thunder Road and Turkey Loops into the new Thunder-Turkey Trail.  We'll be working the next two Saturdays, 5/15 & 5/22 from 10am-1pm.  We'll meet at the project area which mostly lies between the fire road and the main trail's climb by the range.  BYO tools, water, etc. to take out stumps, fill holes and create more trail!

We figure this project will add about a half mile of new trail to SCP and make for a more coherent trail system.  Look for more work days in June/July as we're about to launch into creating a mile of new beginner trail in the woods just NW of the main trailhead. 

As always, keep up with trail status and ongoing projects by following Salisbury Community Park/SCPMTB on Facebook.
