First call for Dogwood Dell trail work

January 6, 2012 11:11am

There’s nothing like the excitement of riding, running and hiking new trail. But new trail doesn’t just materialize on the forest floor. With that in mind, Richmond MORE is inviting trail enthusiasts to come out Saturday, January 14th for the first work day on what will be the Dogwood Dell trails. The heavy machinery comes in later this month, but there’s plenty to do to get the area ready. The result, by spring, will be two new trail loops and almost 3 total miles of new trail.

From the Richmond MORE website: Richmond MORE is kicking off the new year with a great new project. We’ve all been talking about it for a while, but the time has finally come. Trails are coming back to Dogwood Dell! This weekend , we’ll be starting work on a brand new trail system in Dogwood Dell. We’ll be building two different trails, a mountain bike trail and pedestrian trail. We think this will be a lot of fun for all park users. Nathan and the Trail Care Crew have flagged the new trails, so we’ll get started on Saturday by clearing the trail corridor of brush and debris. Meet at 9am on Pump House Drive (look for the big green city pickup truck). This is where we’ll be meeting for the next several weeks while we build the new trails.

What: Dogwood Dell Trails
When: 9am Saturday, January 14, 2012
Where: Pump House Drive
Bring: Water, snack, gloves
