Yard Sale at Yonah Preserve Trail
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 7th, 2017
Saturday, October 14, 2017, 7:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. is a HUGE YARD SALE at 84 Helen Highway, in the Green Oaks Dental parking lot (across from Ingles) in Cleveland, Georgia. We have lots of AWESOME items for sale, including home décor, antiques, electronics, lots of good looking, high quality clothes for all ages, bikes, and much, much more! The sale is hosted by Northeast Georgia SORBA. All funds raised are being put right into the Yonah Preserve Trails “trail fund.” The trails are multi-use trails and will be available for use for so many different people and activities, including the general public as well as White County High School’s Mountain Bike Club and other sports like cross-country. We hope to raise some dollars (a whole lot of them!!), and get people involved with our new, beautiful local trail system. So if you’re a mountain biker, hiker, outdoor enthusiast, family in search of some fun outdoor recreation, or just a nature-lovin’, tree-huggin’ soul, then come meet some of the folks behind the Yonah Preserve Trails. And if you don’t see anything in the yard sale you’d like to buy, that’s okay. We accept donations, too! All donations are tax-deductible!
Can't make it to the Yard Sale but still want to support Yonah Preserve Trails? Mark your calendars for the upcoming work parties:
Limited Trail Openings at Chicopee Woods
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19th, 2017
A limited number of Chicopee Woods MTB Trails are now open. NE GA SORBA and volunteers have made this possible with over 170 volunteer hours in the past 6 days.
Open trails are: Tortoise, Hare, Village, beginning of White off of Tortoise down to the gravel road, Red Tail, and Coyote.
Closed trails are: White Tail, Copperhead, and Flying Squirrel.
These trails will remain closed due to hazardous conditions. We are currently working to make them safe. If you want to help, please send an email to email@example.com with your contact info and availability. Donations are welcome and will be spent at Chicopee. Leave your donation in the box at the trailhead or donate through Paypal.
The Park Commission prohibits anyone not authorized by them from visiting the closed areas of the park. Signs have been posted. Please respect this and stay out of the closed areas. They are no fun to visit anyway. Too many down trees.

Chicopee Woods MTB Trails Ravaged by Hurricane Irma
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 11th, 2017
High winds from Hurricane Irma ripped through Chicopee Woods on Sept 11, 2017 resulting in several hundred trees being uprooted or broken in the bike park. Several uprooted trees took the trail tread with it. For now, the trails will remain closed until we can make them safe to open.
We are hosting a workparty on Saturday Sept 16 @ 9a.m. Look for other workparty announcements soon on our Event page and on Facebook at Chicopee Woods MTB Trails.

New Trail Construction at Chicopee Woods MTB Trails
NE GA SORBA is excited to begin work on a new trail at Chicopee. Plans are to build new trail at the end of White Tail (aka Outer Loop) across the Walnut Creek Dam and rehabilitate sections of White Tail. There will be many upcoming work parties this fall/winter. We need your help!
Join us as we continue working on clearing the corridor around the Walnut Creek Dam for the new approach trail.
Let's show the Park Commission we care about the future of mountain biking at Chicopee by helping with these work parties!
Recreational Equipment Inc (REI) and the South Hall Kiwanis Club have made generous donations to this effort and we thank them for their support!
If you enjoy these trails please consider helping maintain them!
