The Trails Master Plan contains 36 miles of trails, which are comprised of:
- Multi-Use (hiking, running, and biking): 25 miles
- Bike-Only, Gravity: 5 miles
- Hiking-Only or Hiking-Primary: 6 miles
The Trails Master Plan has a total projected cost of $2,500,000, which includes an extensive master planning process as well as the professional construction of extraordinarily high-quality trails.
We have already raised $1,700,000 and invested $1,400,000 in the Trails Master Plan, a Trailhead Master Plan, additional parking, and the construction of 19 miles of outstanding trails.
We need to raise an additional $800,000 to complete the construction of the trails. Having a complete trail system is important for a number of reasons, including:
- The trail system is designed so that all of the trails function together, which means all of the trails are necessary in order to provide connectivity. This connectivity is important because it allows users to create individualized loops of varying length and difficult as well as more directly access the one-way, bike-only, gravity trails.
- We don’t currently have any black (most difficult) trails or newly-constructed hiking only trails. Our current hiking-primary trails are “troads” (old logging roads) that do not provide the same experience as rough, narrow trails.
- In order for the trails to become more a regional draw, we need more mileage.
We have a matching grant of $400,000, so every dollar we raise will be matched!
