During the month of August, the Singletrack Trails crew worked hard at creating sustainable mountain bike trail alternates to the trails in the Glendo State Park Two Moon Complex. These trails are a series of segments that provide loop opportunities to the campers to ride right from the campsite. Families will be able to fill up the weekend camping, riding, and playing the water of the reservoir.
The Two Moon Complex was constructed through a combination of efforts from the Wyoming Conservation Corps, the Americorps NCCC, Wyoming State Park staff, volunteers, and Singletrack Trails. The trails tend to be easy to moderate in difficulty, but the new alternate skill features constructed by Singletrack Trails will help to provide mountain bikers of all abilities something to play on and improve skills.
Near the Two Moon Group Shelter, Singletrack Trails constructed a large pumptrack that is next to the existing existing playground. The pumptrack is connected directly to the trail system via a short connector trail that will allow riders to ride from the trail to the pumptrack and back to the trail without missing a beat. This arrangement of camping amenities will provide large groups to gather for social gatherings.
Here is a map with some of the features that Singletrack Trails has built. The photos can be viewed over at Flickr too.
This week, the crew began construction on a short section of trail under the power lines next to the the Two Moon Campground. The Power Line Flow trail will have pumps, berms and rollers to help mountain bikers apply the lessons of the pumptrack to the trail in a linear environment.
