Bikers are meeting up at Kaw Lake to clean off a trail this Sunday.

They’re looking to clean up Eagle View Trail at Osage Cove in Kaw lake.

Roy Pemberton, part of the Ponca City Mountain Biking Society said this trail used to be a circuit for mountain bike races, but has since grown over.

“It’s not really trash clean-up," Pemberton said. "It’s a matter of trying to get the brush off the trails, so it can be ridden without being beaten up by the limbs.”

Power tools such as, Chainsaws, weed eaters and hedgers are needed.

They are also asking you bring rakes and shovels.

Volunteers from Oklahoma City, Stillwater and Kansas are coming to help.

Pemberton said they will reward you for your hard work.

"We got a bicycle, Pro-Bikes in Oklahoma City helped us out with that," Pemperton said. " It’s a pretty nice Hartel Marin. It’s not just a cheap little bike, it’s a good moutain bike and UnWINEd here in Ponca City is going to help us with the food.”

This is the only mountain biking trail in the area, it’s also a hiking trail.

Crews will start cleaning up around 9 a.m. and plan to finish-up around noon.
