Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride Trail Enhancements

Project Status: Completed

Mr. Toad’s Trail Maintenance

Between 2011 and 2018 TAMBA held multiple volunteer trail days to rebuild portions of this iconic trail formally known as Saxon Creek.
In 2016, TAMBA hired ACE crews to perform major rock work armoring sandy turns, repairing eroded sections of trail, and restoring wide trail segments
to their original singletrack character to “Keep Toads Wild.”

 

Funds raised from TAMBA events were used to complete this work.

Below are some before and after pictures of the work done.
