Duke Power Awards Grant
Duke Energy Volunteer Grant "paves the way" at Lake Norman State Park!

A $1000 grant has been awarded to the Tarheel Trailblazers by Duke Energy (the former owners of Lake Norman State Park) to assist in mechanized trail construction on Phase III of the Itusi/Monbo Trail. The Volunteer Grant was submitted on behalf of the Trailblazers by a Duke Energy employee/ Tarheel Trailblazers member. This money will help speed up the trail-building process, which to date has been all voluntary and extremely labor intensive, by assisting with the procurement and upkeep of mechanized trail building equipment.

While a final completion date has not been set for Phase III at Itusi, with the aid of grants like these, the club is optimistic that the trail will be completed much sooner than originally thought. When complete, the Itusi trail will be approximately 13 miles long, elevating its status in the mountain biking community as a true destination for epic mountain bike rides.
