From The Ashes- Green Mountain Trail

25 Sep 2021 12:00 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

September 19th marked the first day of Green Mountain Trail's rebirth. Mother Nature was not kind to this trail and not only burnt it to a crisp, but also walloped it with rain this past monsoon season. To quote TORCA co-founder Art Alcantara "I've never seen a trail in this bad of shape". Upon the scouting hike, TORCA boardies found the trails completely washed out in areas with some eroded areas virtually impassable. In true TORCA fashion, we didn't see obstacles, we saw opportunities. Sunday saw a outpouring of support from locals and ushered in 26 workers. The focus of the work day was benching, reconstruction of tread, Erosion control and brushing. We got a bout 3/4 of a mile rehabbed looking quite good. We still have a ton of work to do but we have more work days scheduled (October 9th and November 6th) as well as a conservation crew that will be helping out for a  week. Your donations and grants went to fund this conservation crew and much needed tools to accommodate all the workers. An executive decision was made on game day to offer workers an extra raffle ticket for their efforts on Sunday making it a 3 raffle ticket day! Someone is going to be rocking a sweet set of Crank Brothers E Synthesis11 Carbon wheel set at the end of the year! Thanks to everyone who came out to support us and thanks to MotoSonora Brewing for the post work Belly Tank Blondes!
