Saturday, March 26, TEHCC had their first gear swap on the grounds (parking lot) of the Eastman Recreation Building.

Help out our friends at Warriors Path State Park this weekend on Saturday. They need help from experienced and those just wanting to help out one of our great local parks. They’ll be doing work on their hiking trails, disc golf course, and mountain bike trails. Contact Kevin Barham, firstname.lastname@example.org, for details.
We hope everyone had a great weekend. Just one extra thing this week other than the routine Tuesday maintenance outing and Collin’s Friday hikers. The last weekend of the local mountain bike association’s trail building exercise at Bays Mountain Park. If you want to help build the trails that you enjoy on your mountain bike, here’s your chance. Check out the schedule for details.
We have something for everyone this week, hiking, paddling, and maintenance. I hope you can find something that suits you. If not, plan a trip yourself and get it on the schedule.
Check out our schedule for the details and have a great week!
