    I'm in too! Going to try for the 13th also. The crews are getting close to linking with the Gabrielino in the Arroyo. This will recreate a much needed loop on the front side of the Gabes.
    From what I've seen, the KB trail is in the best shape ever. Excellent tread work and brushing. Good job!

    4 with myself included. On top of showing up I promise to pull up a loaded bob trailer. Is that enough, Mikie?

    We have had awesome people get out over and over and over again to build and rebuild our trail system!
    I think it's time that we rally, to include me to go out in force and knock the Ken Burton Trail out of the park together.

    Obviously, the more horsepower we apply, the faster we can get this trail complete. I've been a "thanker" for the hard working folks on this effort for several occasions now.

    But I think a great way to thank those repetitive hardworking trail builders is to get out and contribute.
    I will be there on 3/19... let's get out there and help our mtb brothers and sisters finish this trail.
    Who will be there?

    YAY! I must say that I'll be there on the 13th. On the 19th I'll be pacing "I mean chacing" Steve and J at Strada Rosa.

    Don't worry, you'll also get a ride in be a use all of the work is miles deep in the Arroyo or at the end of a 7 mile climb.

    Voodoo Tom, Ken Burton trail is above Altadena. The rides and trailwork usually start near the JPL lot at Windsor and Ventura.
    The trail starts at the end of the Brown Mtn road, which is actually a singletrack due to lack of maintenence and the Station fire. KB drops down into the Arroyo Seco, where it joins the Gabrielino trail.
    For more details check out the page Erik has made over on the MWBA website.

    Who is Ken Burton, and why does he get his own trail? Did he give you permission to work on it?:confused:;)

    We did it! Finally connected to the bottom. We saved about 1/3 of a mile of tread work for @Mikie, @Voodoo Tom and whoever else shows up next weekend.
    I can't post a video from FB. Is there a tutorial somewehere?

    What a great day! Steve, Mikie, Luis, and Erik leading the charge with 2-stroke choppers! Us trying to keep up with the debris and cutting a bench to the old trail. We had fun. We worked hard. Then there was the scream...Robin screamed bloody murder-not like you would expect, but we soon figured out what had happened. The crew had broken through the brush and connected to the trail at the bottom of the Arroyo.
    7 years ago, the ragged trail was consumed in the Station fire and now, after many nearly a month of individual trailwork days, the work is nearing completion. After 7 years we were finally able to ride KB down and out through the Arroyo. Sketchy and needs a lot of work still, but we did it!

    Do not think this is over. The trail still needs several more trailwork days to get it in real shape for re-opening for the public. Make sure you are there for the 3/19 trailwork day-we have one tough switchback that needs some rock work...Remember-this work is being done 8 miles from the nearest road so riding in and out is necessary. We had 19 hardcore riders out there and at least one guy was running! Let's get the Imtb people out there and get this trail going!

    Can you imagine how many cases of orange spray paint would be needed to mark all the hazards on this trail?

    Everyone who plans to come out this SATURDAY for Ken Burton trail work.. PLEASE RSVP on the Facebook Event page. It really helps us a lot to have an idea of how many people will show up so we purchase enough food.

    Hope to see a bunch of iMTBtrails folks out there this weekend! CHEERS!
