Our next trail preview/work weekend will be on July 23/24 (I hope to be on-site July 22...).
It coincides with Peach Day at Graves Mountain so we can do some riding and cutting and then enjoy the festivities during the midday break on Saturday...

Send me a PM or make a post if you can assist to that I can plan...

Thanks!

Cleanup days on July 23 and 24...

PLEASE let me know if you plan to assist by sending me a PM or by commenting so that I will know to be on the lookout for you.

We will be meeting at 9AM each day next to the Graves Trout Pond (it's located in the field behind the overflow camping field with access both to the camping field and Route 643 . We will swing back to the trout pond around noon or 12:30 each day to regroup.

Whatever tools you'd like to bring will be good. We have areas that have smaller brush and branches that need to be cut back and some areas where we have overhanging branches, some spots with brambles that likely will be best attacked with a hedge trimmer or weed wacker...

We will be using FRS radios on the mountain since cell phone reception is non-existent, using Channel 4.

Big shoutout to Chris Jenkins, Rob White and his son, and to Marshall, Bri, and Esrey Shelts, who came up for Peach Day at Graves and helped clear some more trails and replaced the picnic table up on top of the mountain.

The shirts have been ordered. Exact prices will be determined when I pick them up from the folks doing them... Hopefully, we will be able to provide them at the same price as last year. The design features artwork from a longtime friend and MV owner, Meghan Beckman... :)
