Subject: 7/2 weekly trail work will be at Boggy Draw on the new trail
From: Shawn

Hello Mountain Bikers!

Tuesday evening weekly trail work 7/2 is at Boggy Draw on the new trail north of the Bean Canyon Trail anytime after 3pm to 7pm ish.  See map below, sorry an old map had to be edited this week.  Work starts north of the parking area by the turn to House Creek.  The trail tools will be close to the work site so you can ride your bike or hike in on the trail north of the parking area.

The current work section in red is a combination of roughed in trail needing touch up work and also machine prep work.  Machine prep work is cutting brush, clearing cut brush off the trail and scraping off the duff about 3' wide but no digging necessary.  Then the machine will follow doing the heavy duty dirt work  There is a bunch of trimming that needs to be done so if you are not keen on heavy tool work just grab some loppers and get rid of the pogies sticking up on the tread and oak brush.  We will have loppers available.  Tools are very sharp so please do not use them with flimsy footwear! 

Park around 7 1/4 miles from Dolores on the Dolores Norwood road FS 526 (west side) just before the House Creek road FS 528.  If you are arriving late bike or hike north on trail to work site then grab a tool and find the group.  Route crosses just southeast of the sign for the house creek turn.  If you have not received safety instructions you will need to find a trail leader before starting work

This is a fun and exciting opportunity to improve the local trail system which would not exist if it was not for volunteers like you.   

Wear sturdy footwear and bring gloves, water, sun protection, hat, snacks and eye protection.  The work site starts close to the parking area.  Be ready to have a rewarding day! 

Thanks!  SWCCA

A registered non-profit organization, 100% volunteers dedicated to improving the local mountain biking opportunities and experiences


Southwest Colorado Cycling Association SWCCA is a registered nonprofit organization. Formerly Kokopelli Bike Club.
Members are primarily from southwest Colorado in the Cortez, Dolores, Mancos and Durango area.
Local trails include Phil's World, Boggy Draw, Sand Canyon, Bear Creek, Stoner Mesa, Calico, Colorado Trail, Blackhawk, East Fork, Salt and many more.
Members range from serious endurance racers to occasional cyclists and include both mountain and road bikers.
The SWCCA benefits the area in many ways. It leases property where a significant portion of Phil's world is located and pays for the required insurance. Members volunteer for trail maintenance and trail building using the extensive collection of tools purchased by the club. The club keeps members informed about important land use meetings and projects requiring comments to maintain mountain bike access. It has also proposed many new trail plans to the land managers and member support and input is critical.
The club also promotes a variety of local races including endurance, cross country and cyclocross.
Simply put, if the SWCCA didn't exist most of the trails you ride would not be there. Thank you for your support!!!!!
