Ribbon Cuttings and an Amazing Trail Workshop
The Mammoth Lakes Trail System is having an exciting season with new trails in the Sherwins, an educational and fun trail workshop, and much more to come!
The Developing SMARTER Trails Workshop took place on July 8th and 9th and was well attended by over 45 people from far and wide. Woody Keen of Trail Wisdom led us through a full day of education and discussion at the Mammoth Lakes Fire Station on Saturday. Then we worked together to build over 1/4 mile of new single track on Sunday.
