SVBC Trail Work & Stokesville Solar Celebration

Everyone and anyone is welcome to join SVBC and Shenandoah Mountain Touring/Stokesville Lodge for a weekend of trail work, camping, riding and Solar celebration! The Solar Weekend will celebrate the time of year when daylight overtakes darkness. Join us for this celebration!

Saturday March 29th 9am-5pm : Our first crew will leave Stokesville Campground at 9am and do the same access as Friday.  We will have a second crew leave from the Stokesville Campground at 1pm as well.  Feel free to come to the work site (hiking or biking in) anytime during the day. Even a 3o minute trail effort during your ride goes a long way!
