First Public Trail Work Day for the CVNP mountain bike trail: Sat. Sept. 26, 2015

After 14+ years since the founding of the Cleveland Area Mountain Bike Association (CAMBA), it’s only appropriate that they've finally announced the first public trail day for new mountain bike trails in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park!

All the heavy work for Phase I of the East Rim Trail has almost been completed, thanks to Spectrum Trail Design and the National Park Service, so volunteers are needed to assist with all the finishing work. If you don’t have experience with trail finishing work, no problem … other volunteers there will be glad to show you, and will have all the info and tools to help.

When: Saturday, September 26, 2015 9:00am
Where: Meet at the trailhead parking lot on Boston Mills Road near where the Bike & Hike Trail crosses (Google Maps link).

Lunch will be provided at noon. Any amount of help is welcome, to get this trail DONE so we can start riding it!

Major thank yous are due to the Conservancy for CVNP for their diligent efforts to procure the necessary funding to get this project going! Also big thanks to the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) and Clif Bar for their annual donations to help sustain trail days.

For further details on what to expect on trail days, please check here on the CAMBA web site. In the meantime, please be sure to get registered ASAP as a volunteer with the Conservancy for CVNP. Fill out the "Trail Maintenance Form" on this page. Options for submitting to the Conservancy include:

  • Scan and e-mail to volunteer@forcvnp.org
  • Drop at their office: 1571 Boston Mills Road, Peninsula, OH  44264
  • Fax to 330-657-2328
  • Bring with you on your first trail day

Upcoming Volunteer Orientation sessions can be found here. More sessions will be available as the season progresses, and updated to the site (though attendance is not required before trail work with CVNP or the Conservancy). Stay tuned for future trail days this fall!
