Boggs Event Cancelled: Due to unexpected and unfortunate circumstances there will not be a mountain bike race in Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest this weekend. However, that means the new trails are ready for you to experience without the crowds. Thank you Redwood Trails Alliance for going gangbusters and knocking out Gail's Trail in record time. Thank you volunteers who came out to build Gails and a huge thank you to all of you who support the Bring Back Boggs fundraiser. Through your donations we were able to complete Bear Bones, Boggs Peak and Gails Trail. That's 4 new miles of trail!!!! (Your donations going directly to trails) Thank you Jessica Jennings Pyska for supporting community trails. We continue to raise funds to rebuild our 22 miles of trail. Thank you CAL FIRE for supporting outdoor recreation and bringing events back to Cobb. All trails have been built through community volunteer efforts, private donations and grants written by volunteers. Rebuilding trails with structural integrity to handle all uses takes time and effort. Without you we wouldn't exist. Supporting non-profits who work to benefit the community and public access for all is important and critical to continue having great durable trails for everyone to enjoy. Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you on the trails. #cobbcommunityrocks (photos: credit Tony Cale. Gails Trail) ... See MoreSee Less
