Autumn Splendor

 Leaf Peepers season is in full swing here in the Potomac Highlands. We want to say thank you to everybody who entered our Headwaters Trail Map Raffle. Ironically, a random drawing from the hat landed our board president, Dan Lehmann, as the winner of the framed map! Lucky you, Dan. Many thanks to everyone who bought raffle tickets and supported our efforts on the Headwaters Trail.

We’d like to thank everyone who made it our for trail work in August and September. We clocked nearly 120 hours of work on Saturday mornings for seven straight weeks, rain or shine! Scope out DObbin House Trail just near Blackwater Falls State Park’s Pendleton Lake and you may notice some more room to get around those native rhododendron and mountain laurel beauties. 

Upcoming events: Canaan Valley MTB Festival was postponed but will still be happening October 16-18. More details here.  Blackwater Bicycle Association will be doing a trail work day on Splash Dam Trail on Sunday, Oct 18, at 9 am as part of their Canaan MTB Festival trail work day.  Also, there will be a super fun Bike Hash later in the day.
