Trail Building Project, More Trails = More FUN!

Here is another great opportunity to help create a new system of trails in Emmitsburg. PLEASE help with this project!

Saturday, August 27, 2011 from 8am - 1:30pm

Location: Emmitsburg, Maryland

Rainbow Lake on Hampton Valley Road

The Project: Complete corridor clearing & Begin tread construction

Bring gloves, sturdy shoes, a drink & a snack.

Description: The Town of Emmitsburg has started construction on a stacked loop trail network. This will become the newest singletrack in Frederick County. 75% of the Beginner Trail's corridor has been cleared and the goal is to finish this work and begin shaping the tread on Saturday, August 27, 2011.

In time, this trail system should boast in excess of 20 miles of diverse single track, on terrain comparable to the Frederick Watershed AND Schaeffers Farm. The Town of Emmitsburg has also approved the design Intermediate and Advanced Trails. Upon the completion of the Beginner Trail they will be built.

Join us Saturday for a great morning of trail building followed by a BBQ in Community Park.
