More than 5 miles of singletrack is set to go in at Starr Pass and the Sonoran Desert Mountain Bicyclists advocacy group is looking for volunteer trail builders to help make it happen.
SDMB has been working with Pima County for several years planning new singletrack in the Starr Pass trail system and got the go ahead this week.
According to a Facebook post, the group said the county completed the biological and archeological studies and have the green light to start digging.
The new singletrack trail will branch off from the Four Way and keep trail users out of the basin and off the double track all the way over to Starr Pass and back to the Yetman trail.
SDMB has scheduled their first work event for this Sunday from 8-12:30 a.m. Here are the details:
Join us for Starr Pass Build Day #1 this coming Sunday, February 28! This is your chance to help new trail happen in Tucson! If you can’t make this one, don’t worry as there are more work days set for 3/5, 3/13, 3/19, and 3/20. More to follow in April…
In order to ensure quality work and volunteer safety, we are capping this work day to 15 volunteers. Please register through the Doodle link below. If the event is full, sign up for a future event.
The work day runs from 8:00 AM – 12:30 PM. SDMB will provide all the tools, along with lunch and beverages for afterwards. Everyone who comes out for a build day gets one of our new TLC shirts. All you need to bring is work gloves, water/snacks, and appropriate clothing.
