Looks like rain will hold off. Meet at the ranger station. Bring your bike, helmet, gloves, and something to trim back branches. I have extra tools just let me know if you need some. 

This is also a good time to talk any improvement ideas you might have for the park.

SE MA NEMBA Ames Nowell SP Ride

Date

4/22/18 (All day)

Ames Nowell SE Mass NEMBA Group Ride this Sunday April 22nd hosted by Corey Wynott and Tom McKenna. 
 
Meeting at the park HQ parking lot at 9:30AM, leaving by 9:45AM.
 
This is a technical ride with lots of challenging & at times sketchy rollers. Lots of rocky trails & ledges to climb & descend.
We will be riding at a decent pace but will still be out at least 2 hours as the terrain slows you down.
We will include a full tour of the park hitting some famous trails.   
Intermediate plus technical skills are necessary but average endurance will suffice. 
 
If groups are too big, Corey & I will split off. Join us if you can.
 
***This is not a ride to try out mountain biking for the first time.

SE MA NEMBA Trailcare @ Freetown SF

Date

4/8/18 (All day)

SE MA NEMBA Will be hosting a Trail Care day on Sunday April 8th from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.

So many trees so little time. Many trails in Freetown are not rideable due to numerous blowdowns, not to mention strategically placed sticks that ruin Strava times. We will be cleaning up trails closest to the ranger's station and opening up the Pukwudgie TT loop.

Here is your chance to give back to a forest we all love. Meet at Ranger Station lot at 9 am and we will break into groups. Bring lopers, hand saws, gloves, water, food, Pukwudgie spray, pruners, and good hiking shoes. Hopefully the fire roads will be open and we can drive to trail head.

Leave your bike behind, it will be useless on these trails. Unless it has a chainsaw mounted to the front. You will be rewarded with sugary snacks and non intoxicating beverages. Please share!

Late breaking news will be on this Facebook Page. Read more about SE MA NEMBA Trailcare @ Freetown SF

SE MA NEMBA Clifford Grant Trail Cleanup

Date

3/25/18 (All day)

I've scheduled a trail work day at Clifford Grant in Easton, to start clearing all of the downed trees that have resulted from the three storms.  (And who knows, maybe a fourth by then.)

Date is set for Sunday March 25 meeting at Oliver Ames HS parking lot at 9AM - weather depending.

The Plan is to go in in small groups (4-6 per group) each group with chainsaw operator, and clear sections as per a map I will have ready for the day.

Volunteers should come with study work boots, gloves, protective eyewear if possible, water to drink, and wear clothing that you dont mind getting a little pine sap on. Read more about SE MA NEMBA Clifford Grant Trail Cleanup
