On June 14th we had a grand reopening party for the Lower Corral Trail construction. The project has been a huge sucess for everyone involved in terms of PR, community support, partnerships, knowledge growth and building really cool (legal) mountain bike features in the Forest. BIKE magazine ran an online article last week that got a lot of hits nationally, you can READ IT HERE. In addition there’s been some more national coverage with mention in the Huffington Post about 5 trails that deliver stoke and sustainability.
The plan below shows what’s been built and not built. You can see we have even more features to build in the future with your help! It’s amazing what can happen with strong volunteers, community support and just a little bit of money.
We have no plans to build the rest this year, we’re out of money and it’s too dry right now. Things could change if money becomes available for the Fall or next Spring.
The biggest thanks needs to go to the US Forest Service. Without Jacob, Garrett and their bosses this project never would have happened. They came up with the idea about the same time we were getting TAMBA back together. Then they contracted the design while we organized community input. Finally the USFS let us run with construction. Please keep talking up this project and drumming up support for TAMBA and future projects because this is just the beginning. If the business community can get on board with supporting projects like this we’ll accomplish a lot more. Thanks!
