Sope Creek Trail Work May 16, 2009
Saturday, May 16, 2009 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
Come help execute the finish work on new natural surface multi-use trails at Sope Creek, part of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. We will meet at the Cochran Shoals car park at 8:00am and work until 12:00 noon.
This is part of phase 1 of the trail rehabilitation to replace the existing, badly eroded trails.
Please wear sturdy shoes -- no open toes, please, and work clothes. Bring gloves, water, and a snack as we will have to hike or ride into the worksite.
Lunch is usually provided by a sponsor and I will update that information as we get closer to the event date.
This work is being executed in partnership with the National Park Service (www.nps.gov/chat).

When & Where
The Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association (SORBA) is the largest nonprofit mountain biking organization in the Southeast. Our members work with land managers in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee to create trails and trail systems for mountain bikers and other users to enjoy. Through advocacy, education, and recreational opportunities, SORBA carries out its mission to promote land access, trail preservation, and new trail development in order to enhance mountain bike touring, racing, fun, and fellowship for all mountain bicyclists in the southeastern United States.
We have partnered with the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) and now represent over 3,700 members who help steward miles and miles of great trails in a seven-state area. The best riding in the Southeast is found on trails maintained by our volunteers. Our members love singletrack, rocks, roots, and logs, and we employ IMBA's trailbuilding practices to ensure that our trails are sustainable and challenging.
