WOW, we had 97 total volunteers - 46 GORC people and 32 University of Iowa & 14 Washington University in St. Louis volunteers plus a few other folks.


Thank you to everyone who attended and put in some terrific effort. St. Louis County Parks brought some exceptionally good college volunteers who may never have built trail but managed to look like seasoned veterans in a manner of hours. Great job!


We worked on some tough, rocky trail but managed to complete roughly 0.4 miles of the planned 1.4 miles of the "phase IV" Beulah Reroute and Revitalization Project. The damp and misty day couldn't keep GORC from adding some fun singletrack to our region.


We still have about a mile of trail to build that will go through some fun rocky areas and some flowy, swoopy lines before coming out at the Scenic Overlook in a sort of sun-in-your-face halilueah style moment. Well, that's the goal anyway!


Here's an updated map showing what we did out there.
