For the October trail day at Bellevue park, volunteers are needed who have done PTAG/IMBA trail work in the past, lots of newbies will be present.

The PTAG site shows the bellevue workday starting at 10am. Which one is the correct time?

Noted and corrected. The October 9th day is part of a big community event, so the start time is real early.

Experienced trail builders can show later.

If anyone has a pickup truck that we can use for tool transport on Friday or Saturday, that would be greatly appreciated--PTAG will reimburse the gas

I rode the trail this morning (I think I was the first one to ride it)
Fun :mrgreen:

Entrance

Leaky tree switchback

big switch in the middle

fun "swoopy" part at the bottom

I think the two top switchbacks can be flattened/made a bit easier. Everything else is fine the way it is.

Everybody did a great job building this.

I didn't mean flattening the berm, just making the switchback itself less steep. It's rideable as is, I just think it could be made a bit easier (just a little bit).
