Volunteers are needed for a trail building and repair project this month in south Fayetteville.

Ozark Off-Road Cyclists have partnered with Progressive Trail Design to host volunteer work events on June 24 and June 27 at Kessler Mountain. Participants will help revamp portions of the existing Kessler trail system beginning with Crazy Mary Trail, one of the mountain’s more technical descents.

The project will include large sections of rock work and armory, requiring a larger physical effort than OORC’s typical trail building projects.

Volunteers should meet in the back of the Fayetteville Regional Park on the south side of Kessler Mountain off Judge Cummings Road to catch a shuttle to the top.

Tools will be provided, but volunteers should wear sturdy shoes and long pants.

Scheduled work days this month include:

Saturday, June 24 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Tuesday, June 27 from 5:45 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.
