Our good friends at the Stewards of the Sequoia have scheduled a trail maintenance day at Keyesville on Saturday, February 27, 2016 (the day before the Foothill Classic). Maintenance is needed on the downhill section of this epic trail and volunteers will be hiking in with mcleods and combi’s to perform the work. This is a great opportunity to give back to the land we ride on and ensure that the trails will remain rideable in the future. All volunteers will be treated to a free lunch from Sierra Gateway Mart and the Stewards will provide the tools needed to get the job done.

All volunteers will meet at the Chevron on the corner of Highway 178 and Kern Canyon Road (near the old Mesa Marin Industrial area). We can arrange carpools at 8:00am and drive up to meet the Stewards crew at 9:00am near the kiosk/staging toilet.

Please reply to this post and sign up with the Stewards to ensure that they will have a lunch bag prepared for you. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO REGISTER to help out on Trail Appreciation Days.

There were 13 volunteers at Keyesville on Saturday. The group was made of mountain bikers, moto riders, dirtbags, BLM workers, and a tandem coupe from Ridgecrest. Remember those dudes who rode the tandem at keyesville a few years ago in pajamas? One of those dudes was out there with his wife on their new and wicked tandem Ventana! Trail maintenance is a good way to experience trails we sometimes don't have time to appreciate the awesomeness and meet new people. If you are interested in coming out to a trail day, please let me know so I can alert you of the next one. Volunteers will need to email the stewards directly to ensure they will have a lunch bag ready for them. 

Volunteers worked the section of the Keyesville trail from the big rock turn around point to the the singtrack that heads towards Pearl Harbor drive by the freeway bridge. Several water bars were put in along the singletrack from the rock to the bottom of the hill. We cleared out some ruts which will make that section even faster. The team also worked along the Kern River Trail from the turn around rock down. We filled in a giant, bike eating rut, and smoothed out some switchbacks to prevent users from taking wider lines.
