1. This is a short (5 minute) training video for how to dump the data from a TRAFx mountain bike trail counter to a TRAFx shuttle dock. Includes tips on care and placement of the counter. These are intended to be buried and remain capturing data for months at a time. Recommendation is to check on status and dump data at least monthly.

  2. This is a presentation by experienced volunteer equipment operators Joe Rykowski and Andy Jansky to new prospective volunteer equipment operators. It is the classroom portion of training and provides an introduction to using mechanized equipment for trail construction projects. Specific focus is on Northwest Trail Alliance's ST240 and Ditch Witch machines, but the content is applicable to most construction equipment used for trail construction.

    Further on-the-ground with hands on training is a must if you are new to equipment operations and maintenance tasks necessary to keep your workflow smooth.

  3. This is a photo slideshow with audio commentary from participants during this event.

    Scheduled trail work parties at Stub Stewart State Park for build out of mountain bike area trails are more and more a collaboration between mountain bike trail volunteers, park staff, and other park volunteers.

    The January 14, 2012 event (mid-winter!) had 20 volunteers show up to lay down some fresh single track up on the "ridgeline" trail which is part of the south mountain bike area.
