North Meck Update

We've had some great progress at NMP in the past few months.  The light is at the end of the tunnel.  We've completed 2 Eagle Scout projects and the stream restoration is almost complete.   

We will need to do some heavy lifting to re-connect the trail before we can open it again, but things are happening.  Trail working days are on the horizon.

For more details on the Eagle Scout projects click thru:

Lots of downed trees on the trail & it looks like someone keeps blocking the trail on purpose all through out.  This trail is also very close to me and Im willing to help get it open again.

What is going on with North Meck park? This once was a great trail that I rode 2-3 times a week. It has been closed now for a very long time. What is the hold up?I thought it was supposed to be back open months ago?

As it's a local trail I'm 100% happy to volunteer and get the trails back open. It used to be a great place to ride and go to for events. Such a shame it's still closed. 

Does anyone know the status and why it's not back open yet??

Big stream restoration project on the creek in the middle of the trial and it's tributaries that took out all of the bridges.  Check the FB group link in the original post to follow updates more closely.  Folks are doing trail work now to begin the reconnection process and if you join the FB group you will get updates on the work so you can get in on the fun.
