Tamarancho trail work season begins. After a long wet season, the trails need some TLC to get ready for another year of single track goodness.
The loop trails at Tamarancho were constructed over a 6 year period, from 1995 to 2001, by hundreds of local volunteer cyclists. The work was supervised by Jim Jacobsen, who was president of Bicycle Trails Council, which paid for materials. In 2013, Davey Simon coordinated with Jim and other volunteers to add the new Endor Flow Trail.
To maintain these amazing and popular resources, we depend upon your efforts at the Tamarancho Trailwork Days to maintain, and improve the trails. This involves clearing drainage, cutting back foliage, removing invasive plants, and more. No experience necessary. This is your chance to give back to the best bike trail system in Marin. THESE TRAILS NEED YOUR HELP!
