Building a bridge in Mercer County Park

Building a bridge in Mercer County Park

Mercer County Park and the adjoining Van Nest tract have 16 miles of marked off-road trails. A group called SMART (Save Mercer and Ride the Trails) has permission to mark and maintain the trails in both areas.

SMART has been working to improve the trail layout, and its next monthly trail day in the park is Saturday, December 19. The meeting point is 9 AM in the marina parking lot at the end of South Post Road. Work generally finishes around noon or 1 PM. Bring something to drink; tools and gloves will be supplied.

If the weather is questionable, check?SMART or Jorba.org after 8 AM on Dec. 19 for a cancellation announcement. Contact Mick at smart.jorba@gmail.com for more details. He will email volunteers with the Saturday plan at the beginning ?of the week.

SMART recently was asked to do the trail maintenance at the Ted Stiles Preserve on Bald Pate Mountain. This is also is part of Mercer County Parks Commission land. Trail work there will be done twice a month.
