Water Dog Trail Work Schedule

ROMPers, here’s your opportunity to join the fun of completeting a new trail this season. The City of Belmont has green lighted the new trail segment for this season’s project. It will be one more link, the next to last, in an unbroken series of singletracks that will run from one end of the canyon to the other, all of it rideable in both directions.We’re talking nearly 3 miles of destination type singletrack! These new trails are well below the top of the Western wall of the canyon and offer both great views as well as more intimate segments thru open oak woodlands, to say nothing of technical challenge and big fun. The project this season will be a piece of cake, as much of the clearing got done in the scouting & flagging process & half of it will be on an existing road cut. There is relatively little poison oak and we will cut that first as it is dormant right now and easier to deal with. We already have sufficient soil moisture to cut dirt, so we can proceed w/ all work, WE JUST NEED VOLUNTEERS.

We will also finish the last 70 feet of last season’s project and when time permits do some much needed maintenance on other trails.

This will be a high “payback” season at Water Dog, as we will complete & finish a couple of projects, so don’t hesitate to sign up; you’ll be amply rewarded with that sense of having made a difference & having built a new trail for all to ride.

Please peruse the schedule below and pick out a date or two to sign up and work:

  • Dec 20
  • Jan 17
  • Feb 7 and 21
  • Mar 13
  • April 10

More dates possible as rainfall permits.

E-mail Berry Stevens (bt3mtbiker at earthlink.net) to reserve your space on one of these work days. There are still a couple of Ritchey Z-Max tires to give away to the 5th volunteer, so respond soon.

Water Dog Lake Park is located in the City of Belmont at the end of Carlmont Drive, near Ralston & Alameda De Las Pulgas.

Thanks, Berry
