Celebrate National Trails Day by Building (Then Riding) One

National Trails Day arrives this Saturday (June 3), and what better way to celebrate by some trail work and a mountain bike ride. RVA MORE, Richmond’s hard working trail-building, mountain biking non-profit, gets things started at Pocahontas State Park on Saturday morning with breakfast provided by REI at 8 a.m. followed by some trail work on the new trail going in at Virginia’s largest state park.

But the best part is yet to come. After you’re done digging, you’ll get to enjoy the fruits of your labor with a ride on this yet unopened trail!

It will all be kicking off from the Swift Creek lot at 7298 Courthouse Road, Chesterfield, Va. Click here for the full schedule and to register.

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
