“Trail building is fun, you meet great folks who share your love of Flagstaff Trails, and you become part of the legacy of the Loop Trail in this great town.”-- Flagstaff Biking Organization
Please come with sturdy boots, long pants, water, sunscreen, a hard hat or bike helmet, and gloves if you have them. Please dress in layers and be sure to include rain gear – weather can be unpredictable. Tools, equipment, guidance and training will be provided as well as hard hats for those who don’t have a bike helmet, skateboarding helmet, climbing helmet, etc. Kids under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Lunch and prizes to all volunteers will also be available.
The 42-mile Loop Trail will circumnavigate Flagstaff, providing access from all areas of the city. The concept is that of an outer wheel surrounding Flagstaff, with the spokes being trails within the City (the Flagstaff Urban Trail System). The wheel will link to communities outside the city limits and to Forest Service trails. The Loop will utilize a variety of Forest Service system trails, abandoned roads, the Flagstaff Urban Trail System, the Arizona Trail, and county trails.
