The Buttermilk Trail gets a ton of daily use. That use comes at a cost. Ruts in the trail lead to heavy erosion that just keeps compounding as time goes along. The hard-working JRPS trail crew has a spot they want to fix and have turned to their volunteer trail partners RVA-More.
This Saturday we will be doing trail work on Buttermilk just north of 26th street. We’ll be starting work a new piece of trail to re-route around an area that the JRPS trail crew has identified as a problem spot due to its rutted and eroded conditions which continue to deteriorate. This will be the first of multiple work days in the area. The long term goal is to create two lines of varying difficulty to give riders options.
We will be meeting at 9 am at the parking lot at Riverside drive and 22nd street, right across from canoe run park (https://goo.gl/C58N5d) and will walk to the work site from there. Please bring water, sturdy work shoes, and gloves.
