Tranquility Trail Day July 2nd 8-10am

Hey Folks,

We are having another trail day at Tranquility to finish up the tread work that didn't make it last Sunday. Meet at the Fort Street trailhead, we will work the south hill climb and the prairie from 8 till 10am to beat the heat of the day. We will have some equipment on site. Bring your water, bug spray, shovels, hoes and your coffee. I'll bring the doughnuts!

Great Trail Day at Tranquility

Had a group of 15 out to Tranquility today to get the trail ready to race. Around 30 hours for the group and another 8 hours for Dale and Tigger. The trail is all clear of downed trees, the canopy was raised and the re-routes are fully cut in and ready. Had a couple of groups out with trimmers cleaning up the north tree loop and the ridgeline/wall rides.

Good group out racing the storms rolling in...

Thanks to Frank, Eric, Martin and Dickie for the extra equipment need to complete the job...

good food, good people...

Thanks to Paul for grilling up the Grub!

We still have some tread work to do before race day. We may be looking at doing another trail day next weekend. Watch the blog and facebook for further updates.

Trail Day!

Tranquility Park
Meet at Fort St trail head

Looks like we have some trees down on the fort St loop, so we are going to need a few lumberjacks to handle those.

We are planing on doing treadwork, trimming back limbs across the trail and mowing/weedeating the sections tigger can't reach. Bring bug spray, water and shovels if you can. Thor will have some tools on hand for you to use as well.

Please rsvp either on the facebook page (thor trails) or here on the blog.
Hope to see everyone there!

South side of Tranquility open again/Trail Day

Tranquility is now a full loop again with the installation of a temporary re-route till the city finishes its project. We are not going to invest much maintenance to this re-route because it could be gone at any time.

Due to the dirt piles, the berm after the last camel hump will no longer be used.
There is a link at the top of the south hill to get on the camel humps. We will be riding the camel humps backwards for the time being.

If the city is working in the area, please stay clear.

Trail Day!

South section closed at tranquility

The city is working on a dirt moving project and is very busy in the area. We are temporarily closing the south section to give them room to work and to evaluate trail impact. Please avoid the area until further announcements.

National Trails Day A Success for THOR

Twenty one people participated in our National Trails Day event at Swanson Park.

Frank Olson and Martin Bixby headed up the charge for the day: finish the new exit trail, move the kiosk next to the parking lot, take out some big downed trees and fix some of the ruts on the north side of the fire station. I don't want to give it all away. There are some new features. You'll just have to go check it out for yourself.

Volunteers were rewarded with the scrumptious beef brisket, slaw and watermelon.

We set up our THOR display and wouldn't you have it, two riders saw it and decided to help rather than ride. So awesome.

Thanks for everyone who helped. It was a great day!
