CCCMB Sponsored Trail Workday at Santa Margarita Lake

The mission of Central Coast Concerned Mountain Bikers (CCCMB) is to expand the network of sustainable and enjoyable trails in SLO County and to maintain the trails currently in use. Since 1987, CCCMB has worked with California State Parks, the National Forest Service, San Luis Obispo City, and San Luis Obispo County in designing and building new trails and in maintaining existing ones. 

Help CCCMB keep the trails of SLO County open and fun to ride by joining us for trail work. Just bring yourself and water. Wear long sleeves, long pants, sturdy boots, gloves and a hat.

Santa Margarita Lake: December 11, 8:30am

Meet at White Oak Picnic Area at main entrance.  This trail needs lots of help because the water runs down the center of the trail causing major erosion.  The other issue is that brush is growing on the inside of the trail, pushing horses to the outside edge and breaking down the trail.  There are two options for working:

  • One is to take the pontoon boat across the lake to work on the western end of the Falcon Trail (almost directly across from the White Oak dock).  This will involve some hiking, and individuals can decide how much hiking they want to do.  We will be working on fixing drainage issues to get the water off the trail and reduce erosion.  This will be the more strenuous option.
  • The other option is to ride in from the River Road entrance and ride up the east entrance of the Falcon Trail (closer to the Sapwi Trail).  The goal here is to bring loppers and cut back vegetation that is growing on the inside edge of the trail, which forces horses to the outside edge which breaks down the trail.  This group can decide how far they want to go.  It is not expected that you will ride the entire trail.  It is better that you don’t, so that you won’t meet the group working from the west end.  You will need to bring your own loppers.

Participate in just one trail work day a year. It makes a difference!
