Trail day this coming Saturday July 22

i Jul 20th No Comments by
We will be picking up where we left off last time and will be here until this trail connects!  This is the ‘seminary’ trail and is the southern ‘spur’ that currently connects to the main loop of the Kelly system.
As always, CTR will provide lunch and cold beverages.  Please wear appropriate clothes, bring water bottles, and don’t forget your rain gear! (though if it’s thundering, we’ll call it a day)
From Matt, our new trails coordinator for the summer:
Iam looking forward to our event this Saturday.  The plan is to meet at 08:30 at the location described below and continue working on the seminary trail.  The meeting spot is south of Mountainaire on Forest Road 235a.  We will be accessing the 235a through Mountainaire, which is a little confusing.  The written directions are as follows:
Exit Kachina/Mountainaire off of I17 and head East on Mountainaire Dr
After the tavern go left on Osage
Right on Shoshone
Left on Pawnee
Left on Bannock
Right on Kiowa
Right on Huron
Left on Cado
Right on Twilight
Cruise down Twilight to the South and you will hit the Forest Boundary.
Enter the Forest and veer Left on the 235a.
Stay on the 235a and you will run right into the parking area which will be flagged with orange streamers.
For all of the folks that have google earth on their phones I have included a “pin” they can open up to help them navigate.  Its actually easier than it sounds, you just got to get to Twillight to access the National Forest.  The Forest access point is near the address 4407 Twilight if you want to google it.  If anyone gets lost please call my cell 928 607 4335 and I will help guide them in.

Want to get out of the heat and into the forest? Come join us at the June Kelly Canyon trail day this saturday starting at 8:30. Bring your hot weather survival kit (sunscreen,water, snax) and enthusiasm, we provide the rest including tools,PPE, lunch and cold beverages. Don’t forget, all attendees get a $10.00 Rocky Mountain ATV gift card. A few trail days and a few meetings and you’ve got a new tire (or whatever else the bike needs).
The plan is to meet the Trail Crew south of Mountainaire . We will be working on the same trail we were working on last year. The meeting spot is in the same place; head south on FR 700 out of Mountainaire, go left on 235k, then left on 235j. There will be signs and flagging to help guide you in.

Sorry for earlier confusion over the 13th. When in doubt show up at the American Legion on the 3rd Tuesday of the month unless elpresidente says otherwise.

First trail day of the season Sat. May 13th – Don’t Miss the Fun and Excitement!

Yup – it’s time to head back to the Kelly to build more glorious single track. New this year – Sean promises less rocks and more pin flags.

We will be working on installing an information kiosk at the new trailhead as well as completing the ‘technical loop’ of trail.  AND – volunteers get a ticket to attend the Overland on Sunday. A little trail work, some pizza and friends and a free ticket to boot. What more could you ask???
Follow Lake Mary Rd south of town until FR867, where you will turn right.  Follow FR867 up the hill and you will see us off to the right.  Please be ready to work at 8:30 with your PPE: hard hat, safety glasses, long pants, close toed boots, and gloves.
google gps is 35.127402, -111.624545

Next Meeting Tuesday May 16

Please join us starting at 6:00 pm at the American Legion off of Humphries St. The meeting will be short and to the point with time afterwards to talk about the issues you are most interested in (including all the cool stuff you saw at the Overland Expo and the first trail day of the season!)

 

See you there!

April Meeting Tuesday April 14 at the American Legion at 6pm

i Apr 14th No Comments by

We are trying a new streamlined agenda to get through the main news items and then let folks get together into small groups to discuss issues near and dear to their hearts (racing, dual sport, 2 stroke versus 4 stroke, boxers or briefs…). So, if you haven’t been to a meeting in a while because you found it to be tedious and long winded, please show up on Tuesday and help us refine this concept so we can keep everyone engaged.

And, please, mark your calendars for the trail days this year. We put some very aggressive volunteer match hours into the grants this year and need lots of hands at all the trail days you can make. Thanks!

CTR is in the April AMA magazine

For those of you who get the members magazine, check out the article on Trail Stewards and Trail building including the interview with past president Warren Williams. Good stuff – without trail work, we would be riding the roads……..
