Hurricane Sally Beat-up our Trails but We Will Rebuild.

Whew... what a weekend. #hurricanesally cleanup at #UWF was brutal and we can’t say THANKS enough to all the volunteers that came out to help. We also had people helping get Muscogee MTB trails back in order as well.


On Saturday we had 20 volunteers show up and Sunday we had over 30 people putting in time to help restore the trails. Many of the volunteers were brand new putting in an estimated 200+ hours of work. A special thanks to Bryan Crawford and Nick Graham from MSfits MTB in Mississippi who drove over to help.


Didn’t make it out this weekend but still want to help the club? Please join PORC here —>

Trail Status - UWF

The GAME’S side which is located north of Pate Rd is mostly ready to go for those eager to get outside. Pink and Purple loops are in the better condition. The Orange loop after the bridge on Donkey Kong needs a lot of love all the way through Paperboy to Qix so we would recommend staying off of those sections.


The MAIN Side has so much work to do. Many large trees still down and large holes from erosion and trees pulling straight out of the ground. Be cautious and we would say the Main Side is not yet ready to ride overall.

The board will talk this week and come up with another plan for workday(s) as it will take awhile to fully restore all the trails we love.

We manage three different trail systems that we’ve built, advocated for, protect, and ride. We’ve been doing this since 2000 and the university and club have agreements in place keeping the trails open to the community and PORC the trail stewards. The university is simply the land owners and have no other responsibilities or obligations to the trails the club has created. This is how most trail systems exist around our country. It takes a unified group that forms to protect and provide access to the land. Simply put, without PORC the trails would not exist.

I'm curious as to why you guys are in charge of clearing the trails. Why doesn't the university hire people?

I've some experience with dirt road maintenance, but we would bring in clay and gravel for fixes so not exactly the same as a hiking or bike trail. I do have a chain saw, gloves, loppers, shovel ect. for clearing. What's going on down there? Is it just clean up, or are portions of the trail having to be rebuilt or detoured?

Hey Joseph. Right now we the club has been working hard to simply get trails open. There isn’t a plan as of this minute to use down trees. Do you have experience with trail building or maintenance?

Will the cut lumber be repurposed and used on the trail?
