The trails surrounding Old Fort are some of the best in WNC, and the weekend of Nov 17-18th they are going to get some love. Along with two of our neighboring chapters, we will be helping promote and organize this exciting weekend of work, riding, and camaraderie. Base camp for the event will be on the doorstep of Pisgah at Camp Grier, and the hosts are offering dinner, lodging, and more (like free shuttles to the top of the trails).This will be a great time!

The trails surrounding Old Fort are some of the best in WNC. Each year we like to show them some love. The OF Trail Work Weekend is a biannual event to improve Kitsuma, Heartbreak Ridge, Star Gap, and many other trails in the Old Fort area. Volunteers can commit to one day or the whole weekend. We welcome any amount of time volunteers can contribute.
Work starts in the morning and we leave plenty of time in the afternoon for a ride or a run. Shuttles are provided for laps on Kitsuma. Camp Grier provides free camping and lodging as well as dinner on Saturday night.
Volunteers need to bring: gloves, closed toed shoes, breakfast, lunch and water bottles, clothing appropriate to be working outside, and camping equipment.

The SORBA Summit will be in Old Fort, NC, April 12th-16th, 2023. This event will be hosted in partnership with the Alliance and G5 Trail Collective. The Summit schedule, registration link, lodging and camping details, and other info will be posted here as it develops. The weekend will also feature several guided group rides in and around Old Fort’s Gateway Trail System. The rides will be free of charge and open to the public. Stay tuned!
We’re going riding! We will meet at 3:00 PM at the far end of the parking lot by the Pavilion. This will be a no drop ride and we’ll split up the group based on abilities. There will be lots of opportunties to check out all the cool work that’s been happening at the park. If you have a BMX/Pump track come with it and hang at arguably the best view from a pump track! We’ll likely meetup post ride for a little hang time too. Looking forward to seeing y’all there.
