We will be building the new Mesa Top trail from Highway 65 to Flowing Park reservoir.  The Mesa Top trail will provide a 7 mile non-motorized single track that will connect with the popular Flowing Park trail. It will wander through dense forest and open grassy flats, hug narrow benches clinging to the rim and snake through shimmering Aspen glades.  Once the Mesa Top trail and its connectors are completed, there will be several looped trail options ranging from 6 to 28 miles. 
 
Across highway 65 will be more smaller looped trail options currently in the design stages.  This area is destined to become popular with riders of all abilities. 
 
Some volunteers and crew leaders may camp out after the work day and ride nearby trails on Sunday.  So bring your bike, tent, fishing gear?...... and join us for a fun weekend out of the heat!
 
Call 270-8575 if you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help with the shopping and/or cooking.
