United Trails Day puts 60 volunteers to work on local trails

About 60 equestrians, mountain bikers and motorcycle riders tackled trail work throughout the region Saturday for United Trails Day.

On the Hallelujah Trail, the team cut 100 yards of new singletrack out of the Skillman Campground off Highway 20. This takes trail users off Burlington Ridge Road.

Others rebuilt several of the steep, rutted switchbacks, re-routed a section, built rock walls and built a new switchback on the Excelsior Trail, also known as Ghost Train.

Last but not least, another group installed signs at different trail heads throughout the area.

The trail work day was organized by Gold Country Trails Council, Bicyclists of Nevada County and Nevada County Woods Riders, working with Tahoe National Forest.
