The Glentress Trailfairies are volunteers who help out with maintenance work on the existing bike trails and hand-build new sections of singletrack at Glentress Forest. The group was established in 2002.
Join the Trailfairy Yahoo group and sign up to the mailing list.
Trailbuilding sessions take place on the last Saturday of the month from 9am - 4pm (Jan - Nov) except May (see below)
No pre booking is required, just turn up on the day and say hello, you'll be made very welcome. We meet up at 9am at the toolshed in the Upper Overflow carpark (old Osprey car park).
