Hurstwood Trail Maintenance

Published on: Jul 29 2017 by Sam Hopley

Hurstwood MTB Trails had a little bit of a spruce up earlier this week. The volunteers descended in numbers and tackled some seriously soggy patches along the trail. With fresh stone kindly donated by United Utilities surface drainage has been improved and the trail is flowing great again.

With an army of helpers it didn't take long. Soggy patches where soon cleared, stoned laid and the wacker moved in to do its job.

Maintenance days are a great way to pay back your dirt. It's an amazing feeling knowing your hands have helped build and maintain your favorite trails. It's also a great place to make new friends! If you would like to help and pay back your dirt then join in on a dig day soon. The best place to keep up to date on dates are the trail centers Facebook pages.

Special thanks to United Utilities, Lancashire County Council and all the amazing volunteers who helped.

      There are some great natural bridleways from Hurstwood, for the more experienced. Or we support other nearby venues such as lee quarry or the downhill lines above Portsmouth Todmorden at dirt trax (was cockhill). Not every venue can be aimed at every level of rider, Hurstwood is designed as a starter trail with no plans to expand the trails there.
