RSVP Here

 

Date: September 19th, 2015 - 9am - 1pm

 

Location: Greensfelder County Park

 

What: If you've ridden Fossil Ridge and what we've built on Beulah then you know you want to continue extending the trail!!! We will also be finishing up a big drain crossing and benchcutting some tread that is still too sloped.

 

We will finish building out the second phase of a multi-phase project to renovate the Beulah trail in Greensfelder Park.  We will continue where we left off.  As usual, we have a good size group of non-experienced volunteers scheduled to be there, so the more experienced trail builders we have on hand the better.

Where: Greensfelder Park, Allenton Rd. behind Six Flags. NOTE: Park at the Beulah Shelter located about a half mile down Scenic Loop Road - the road inside the park. Lunch will be provided at Beulah Shelter.

 

What to bring: Gloves, Sturdy shoes, eye protection, and something to drink on the trail.

 

Lunch will be provided by St. Louis County. Please post below if you intend on coming for the lunch count. If you post here there is no need to contact St. Louis County. If you would like a vegetarian sandwich, please let us know.

 

Bring your bike for a great ride afterward, weather-permitting!

Looking for someone to help with the registration computer. Or someone to unload the Tool Trailer. I can't be at both places ! You just need to answer questions and make sure people sign in for the Trail Build.

Second thing, We will be launching electronic sign in 2.0 this weekend. Please show up a few minutes early !! For St. Louis County Parks Trail Builds we just need to sign a waiver that will be good for 5 count them 5 years !! Then just sign in on the computer so we can then send a list to STL County Parks. No more multiple sign in sheets for GORC Volunteers !!

A huge thank you to the 31+ GORC volunteers who assisted the high school kids and showed them how to build trail. We began from both ends of the new "beulah climb" with the goal of meeting in the middle but it seems like the hillside grew in length as we worked! We have about 600+ feet of trail that is cleared but not benched at all. We have benched sections that will need additional work at the November 7th build but we should have that section entirely completed on that day.

 

And the Appreciation Party will be immediately afterward at the Beulah Shelter.

 

Bryan took a crew and finished the two creek drainages below the shelter that were incomplete. They look and ride very well! Overall the Beulah trail is shaping up to be quite a nice addition to the park. The rockier terrain may be slower and harder to bench but it will handle heavy  horses and help with post-rain drainage.

 

I rode from the Roundhouse and did the DeClue loop to Fossil Ridge to Beulah and wrapped it up with the climb up to the Visitor's Center and it came in at 11.2 miles - nice!  Maybe a 3/6 hour event someday???

 

The master plan of Beulah is not complete, however, by turning left at the top of where we connected onto the original Beulah line takes you back up to the shelter and creates a flat 2 mile Beulah Loop. If we gain approval there is a plan to take Beulah to the Scenic Overlook and then back up to the shelter adding about another 1.6 - 2+ miles of trail as the final Beulah Loop Trail. Keep your fingers crossed because the terrain is even cooler than what we've worked with over on Fossil Ridge and Beulah thus far.
