Help build and maintain trails with the Glentress Trailfairies

The Glentress Trailfairies are volunteers who help out with maintenance work on the existing mountain bike trails and hand-build new sections of singletrack at Glentress Forest. They meet fortnightly on Saturdays at 9:00am. It's a fun and sociable way to give something back to the trails.
