We had lively and hard-working crew show up at Sechler Park river bottoms for our first ever CROCT trail work last Saturday. We clipped branches and cleared brush and leaves on a demonstration trail that we plan to show members of the Northfield Parks Board (PRAB) in the next month or so.
Back row, L to R: Jeremy Bokman, Galen Murray, Marty Larson, Lisa Neitge, Michael Lehmkuhl, Ryan Hutchinson, Kevin Herman, Josh Seifert. Front row: Marty and Lisa’s girls. Not shown: Michael’s wife and two kids who later showed up to help, too.
Mountain bike enthusiasts in the Northfield area have formed an organization named Cannon River Offroad Cycling and Trails, which has met three times and selected a board of directors. The group has started early discussions on making a trail near Sechler Park in Northfield, Hutchinson said.
