    250 dirtbikers, mountain bikers, hikers, and horseback riders converged on Flagstaff, AZ on June 1st to participate on making new trail for the Kelly multi-use trail system in the Coconino National Forest.

    And by multi-use, I do mean MOTORIZED!

    It was the largest turnout ever for a trail work day in the Coconino National Forest!

    I saw this and was bummed I couldn't come and help. Great to see such a large turn out. I read they are opening 50 miles of single track and cant wait to get up there and ride this summer. When are you putting together the first ride up there?:clap

    It probably won't be ready for riding this year. Coconino Trail Riders do have quite a few trail work days scheduled this summer to get that area opened up!

    I got to meet Fuggy and catch up with kbblue while I was up there yesterday.

    I had a great time building new trails and meeting new friends. Great turn out, I heard 215 people showed up. Lots of strong support from ATR and CTR clubs.

    I'm looking forward to going back up there and riding with my new friend Smokey the Bear! :lol3
