Opening of "Figure 8" Completes USNWC Trail
I wanted to thank all who came out to help over the last several months on the Figure 8 trail. Over this week several people have volunteered time and my staff have put in some long days doing final prep work. We are happy with the enormous amount of energy put behind this part of the project and even more thankful for not having to haul telephone poles, rip rap, or gravel anymore (at least for the near future). Nicely done. We have an awesome trail available to us now and I am happy to say not only did we hit our opening date, but we are opening early. That’s right - get on your bike and hit the trails on Saturday and try a fantastic advanced trail that has some great trail features. One day early of our projected opening date of April 1st! If I only could I would set up a golden spike and have Frank drive it in on Saturday morning. He has been great to work with and we have learned so much from his consistent involvement in the project. Thanks need to go out to so many people of some I just know faces and I apologize, but I hope to see you on the trails sometime enjoying the fruits of your efforts. Cheers to all and happy riding.
