A group of 22 volunteers came together last Saturday, April 27 to prepare the Gateway Trail system for the upcoming riding and hiking season.

Volunteers raked and cleared downed branches on several miles of trail, including Gateway Trail, My trail, Pig Farm, and Marley. Sponsors The Fifth Season, Mt. Shasta Super Market, Deschutes Brewing, and Shasta Gravity provided sustenance and transportation for the fun-filled day of raking and riding.

The next Trail Volunteer Day will be Sunday, May 18. Meet up 9 a.m. near the Bike Park at Shastice Park at 800 Rockfellow Drive in Mount Shasta.

Volunteers will focus on litter and brush control in the vicinity of the Bike Park and on adjacent, newly constructed trails. The event will be followed by a fundraiser for trail designer and friend, Andrew Pellkofer.

Pellkofer has provided decades of expertise helping communities throughout northern California and Europe design and build sustainable, multi-use trails, according to a press release.
