For those participating in the Share Your Trail Build Contest I’m going to keep a running list of all the entries. I’ll upload information about their trail build and photos from the location. Hopefully these updates will inspire you to get out there and build a new trail, fix up an existing trail, or add an addition.
For all of the information on the Share Your Trail Build Contest check out my post. ToolsForTrails.com will be giving away a Rogue Tools F70HR hoe rake to a random winner from all of the qualifying entries. Be sure to also check my article on mountain bike trail building tools to make your next trail build a bit easier.
Single Track Alliance Of Yakima
My name is Will and I am with Single Track Alliance of Yakima. We are a small group of MTB enthusiasts who are building mtb trails in Yakima, WA. We’re developing a 600 acre parcel of ridgeline for a trail system. The trailhead is called Rocky Top. There’s currently a 10ish mile lolli-pop and more trails in the works! The trails are designed to be intermediate level single track with some harder and easier trails thrown in.
Columbia County, NY – Berkshire Foothills
My name is Owen Poland.
The trail is being built in NY state, Columbia County in the Berkshire foothills. It’s a technical singletrack loop that follows the natural contours of the land, and incorporates the natural rock outcropping and topographic features. It will be approximately 8/10 of a mile when done, and it will connect the riders to another trail in the network. The trail will have the perfect amount of flow so that riders will not have to blow themselves out during the intro of the ride. It will also incorporate enough technical features so that it allows progression to the more difficult features on the next trail. I work alone primarily, so all the pics are self shot after work sessions.
