Construction on the trails started mid-August 2016. Over 1250 hours were donated by volunteers to help cut backslope, remove hazards, smooth trail and install signs to make these trail happen. Phase one trails (red, blue and yellow) opened June 2017. Phase 2 build (purple, green and pink trails) started July 2018 and was opened October 2018. Phase 3, “Ben’s Bike Playground” was constructed July-Sep 2021 and is scheduled to open June 2022. Additional construction of Ben’s Jump Lines (new orange trails off of Hot Tamale/Red) is scheduled for summer 2022.
Our youth mountain bike program, CMBR Kids, for ages 8-16 on Tuesday and Thursady evenings July-August from 7-8:30pm.
More help is always needed to maintain the trails, you can find us through email or on Facebook.
