MTB Trail Work Party

Fire Lane 5 – Forest Park work party

Description: As your Forest Park Co-Representative, I am pleased to announce that our Forest Park Ad Hoc Advisory Committee has been formed and will be having our first User Group meeting at the end of the month. This is key for us, as we will be constructing a white paper which will go forward to the City advising 5-Yr Plan ammendments to bring real singletrack (yes – real singletrack!) to Forest Park.

Part of furthering our FP goals is being caretakers of what we have in a visible way and in unison with Friends Of Forest Park. This is our time to foster goodwill and to demonstrate our commitment. At the behest of Stephen Hatfield, Program Director for FoFP, we will have a Firelane 5 trail party on November 3rd. I am pleased to announce that we are currently in the process of formally adopting this piece of trail, so a strong PUMP turn-out is really appreciated. This will go on our calendar as well as the FoFP website.

FoFP has given us their wonderful Trails Coodinator, Jeff Hough, for this effort. Jeff will be supplying all of the tools we will need as well as breakfast pastries from Grand Central Bakery (yum!).

Bring: Work Gloves, Wet Weather Gear, and Water

Please let me know if you are coming so we can ensure there are enough tools (and pastries) to go around

Meeting Place: Top of Salzman, off of Skyline Rd.
