web_20121203_013

Singletrack Trails is working with COPMOBA, Grand Valley Trails Alliance, and the Grand Junction BLM FieldOffice to construct one more section of trail before winter hopefully arrives.  Even in the Grand Valley, it is eerie to be building trail in short sleeves and dry moondust in December.

This trail will be an extension of Joe’s Ridge and full`features like pumps, rollers, and jumps.  The new trail is going to be a trail similar to the Singletrack Trails spring project PBR Trail, but with larger features and jumps.

COPMOBA, GVTA, and the Endoholics came out in force on December 1st to build the first portion of the trail.  James and Jeff, of the Singletrack Trails crew, have been out all week working on building the jumps in Section 2.  This Saturday, December 8th, there will be another volunteer trail work day to complete Section 3.
