The pork butt is on the smoker!

We will have a separate dafodil bulb planting activity in the morning near the Phase 1 Kiosk. Please meet at the gas burn-off parking area and we'll split some folks that way who are interested in that.

November Gateway Park Workfest Photos

“Dang! It’s hot!” It may say, “November” on the calendar, but the temps said “June” last Saturday at the Gateway Park Workfest! Work continues on the Gateway Park east side trail extension. Unlike last year where the Fort Worth Mountain Bikers’ Association had great trail building weather throughout the season this day would be not be so ideal. With temps nearing the mid-90’s by afternoon all that was missing was the rattle of locust in the trees.


Image
Undeterred by the warm start to the day FWMBA volunteers loaded up war wagon with tools to begin building new singletrack.

Image
Since the east side of Gateway Park is an old landfill we were bound to run into some ancient garbage.

Image
Gateway Park trail steward, Andy Mans poses with some newly built singletrack.

Image
By mid-morning FWMBA volunteers were hacking through a big stand of privet. Not fun!

Image
Angela wrestles some barbed wire from a bygone era.

Image
A FWMBA volunteer goes mid-evil on privet.

Image
Amanda checks out a honey locust tree. Very pointy.

Image
Privet being hauled off to make way for luscious singletrack.

Image
This is not family friendly privet.

Image
After choppin’ privet in the hot sun I fought the taco and the taco won – but only after I ate 3 of them.

Image
Some life forms succumb to privet.

Image
It wasn’t all fun in the sun. FWMBA volunteers planted over 100 spring bulbs around the FWMBA trailhead.

Image
More bulbs were planted at the trail entrance

Image
Even the FWMBA kiosk got the spring bulb treatment.

The unseasonable hot (not warm, hot) weather hindered the progress of FWMBA. However, progress was made. With any luck we’ll have an unseasonably cool day late next spring to make up for this day’s summer-like conditions. 16 volunteers, some working till mid-afternoon, added more singletrack to the already great trails at Gateway Park.

FWMBA next Gateway Park Workfest will be Saturday, December 1. Be there for more fun, food and singletrack building!
