OB Central Valley: MET (Mormon Emigrant Trail) Winter Jamboree!

Tis the season and its time to enjoy it! This will be the 1st annual Central Valley Winter Jamboree!

For once, when a gate is locked on a trail it means that we get to play! The MET trail turns into a winter wonderland for those preferring the road less traveled. We will get to enjoy roughly 22 miles of white fluffy roads. Come out and join us for some slippery snow plowing fun!
