**Trail inspection from the storm Elkin experienced at the end of April: MTB Course needs some attention.**
**Tasks for Saturday**- the experienced group will address bigger issues, regular experience will address moderate issues, and the general group will address smaller debris.
Depending on attendance, we could have multiple groups of each category.
Stay as long as you can- if you only have 1-2 hours to give- we’ll take it! (THANKS)
**If there is only 1 group- we will work together- the general helpers will help with debris on the ground, while the others will work to get the debris safely in pieces that the general helpers can manage.**
**So if you have the time, and are a general helper- and we have only 1 group- we will still need you. Come out and get some exercise, while giving back to all.**
We’ll meet at the Elkin Rec. Park to discuss the plan and safety talk.
Safety and Awareness is Always First
We imagine there will be multiple work days, and some during the weekday. We’ll post these pop-up days, as well as, further planned out dates as soon as we know. Our [Facebook](https://www.facebook.com/ElkinValleyTrails) site will have updates, too.
