The trails on the front side of Heil need a face lift. Poor design and construction methods, along with years of multi-use has resulted in a gravelly, loose trail. Good news: we know how to fix it. Come out on National Trails Day and help us put the shine on the front side to make the WHOLE of Heil Valley Ranch as enjoyable as Picture Rock and Wild Turkey.
BCPOS and BMA want to bring the old trail up to the standards of the new trails (Picture Rock & Wild Turkey). Long, straight runs are no longer the way to go in trail building. Grade dips and contouring ensure a more sustainable trail system and a more enjoyable ride.
This is more challenging than putting in new trail because we have to build a trail within a trail, bringing in the old trail and putting in the contours, grades and water diversion structures, thus reshaping the trail tread. We broke ground on this project May 09 - if you've been out there, you've probably noticed that the ride near the Pondo/Wild Turkey Junction is a bit more stable and a lot more fun.
Oskar Blues will make sure volunteers don't go hungry and don't go dry!
