Posted: Friday, May 08, 2009

JUNEAU - The public is invited to trail building workshops with Trail Mix and the International Mountain Bicycling Association this weekend.

The workshop on sustainable trail design and construction starts Saturday with a brief classroom session at 9 a.m. in the Douglas Public Library meeting room. After that, participants will help reroute a short section of the Sheep Creek Trail to reduce erosion and improve access. More trail work is scheduled for Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The weekend kicks off Friday evening with a party at the Hangar Ballroom, 6-8 p.m., with a suggested donation of $15. Trail experts will be on hand to talk about Juneau's mountain biking trail potential.
