With a major assist from The Friends of Forest Park, mountain bikers are set to begin the process of planning and building a brand new piece of trail in Forest Park.
According to PUMP board member Roger Louton, the new trail will be an addition to the existing Firelane 5 fire access road. The new trail is between Wildwood Trail and Leif Erikson Road and will be approximately four feet wide.
Work on the trail is set to begin in August.
The money for the trail comes from a grant applied for by The Friends of Forest Park. PUMP will be involved in planning the trail and the building will be completed by volunteers, trail-building experts and an Americorps crew.
