TEC Ardbeg Spring Trail Cleanup 2022
Going strong into our 5th year as a club and wheeling with great people! Support our trail cleanup initiative by joining the club and participating at the trail cleanup events. Trail cleanup is our largest open to everyone event where you can meet like minded explorers, get to know each other and form a bond for the 2022 summer wheeling season.
As per usual we are taking care of the South/North Trail and Black Loop this time and collecting any garbage that we may encounter during the weekend.
DO NOT BRING YOUR OWN GARBAGE BAGS – ALL GARBAGE BAGS, GLOVES AND TRASH PICKERS ARE SUPPLIED BY THE CLUB FOR TRAIL CLEANUP
We ask that waste be collected in clear bags.
That materials be separated as best as you can in the following format for us to accept.
- Bulk Waste
- Beer Cans/Bottles

– Stock friendly trip, if it’s your first time – this is the time
– It is going to be cold to camp, bring firewood, dress warm, it may rain.
PRO TIP: IT ALWAYS RAINS
– Bring everything you need for camping, plus extra food for me.
– Have tow strap and recovery points available, few sections can be muddy at this time of the year. When in doubt walk the water crossing.
– There are no washrooms or showers, bring your own toiletry and plan ahead.
– Most importantly, bring yourself and help us clean trail systems
