We’ve got a few trail building partners to introduce you to.


Why We Build


Hopefully you’ve been able to enjoy the beauty of California while gleefully riding the various trails. There’s a lot of magic out here, but there are many more secrets this state has tucked throughout the mountains, between valleys, from inland to the Pacific, and we’d like to discover those secrets ourselves. With big hearts, determination, and the willingness to sweat, we dig our ways, literally, to the vision of what we know mountain bikes can bring us to; community. We build so that we can know our land and neighbors, and hopefully build these trails together so that we can ride them together.


We once heard a coach say “they is you,” meaning that the “they” you may be thinking about doing all this work is actually you. Without maintaining pre-existing trails and without exploring new opportunities, anything we already have or dream to have vanishes. Make no mistake that any sweet berm, rock garden, bridge, or flow trail wouldn’t be there if it weren’t for hardworking and excited individuals coming together to provide a great riding experience for folks like us.


Upcoming Trail Work Days


Any amount of time you’d be willing to donate to one of our Trail Work Days is greatly appreciated! All of our work days will be listed on our calendar, but feel free to reach out with any questions (hp@norcalmtb.org).

You’ll bring: Strong work ethic, hat, sunscreen, water, and snacks.
