This past Sunday, before the Superbowl, two groups of local trail advocates with the Central Arkansas Trail Alliance got some needed work done on the Camp Robinson Mountain Bike Trails. One group, under the leadership of Basil Hicks Jr. built a new bridge near the intersection of Can O' Corn and a new reroute of Dogwood. The other team, lead by Eric Grimmett, worked on the Dogwood reroute. Many of you know of the erosion problem on Dogwood. This should hopefully make it a more enjoyable and sustainable trail. See the two galleries below to get a climpse of the work that was done. Thanks again to all the volunteers who turned and burned out there to make this happen. If you haven't been to Camp in a while, check out our Camp Robinson page to get the latest info on the trails and getting access to them.
New Bridge at Can O' Corn and Dogwood
Bridge and rock work crew included Basil Hicks Jr, Basil Hicks III, Sharon Saunders, Hal Hedges, Richard Thompson, and Pam Stehle.
Reroute on Dogwood
Eric Grimmitt, his dad Keith and Eric Crawford worked on the upper part of the dogwood. Eric did most of the bench cutting on this trail. Eric has also been working on a new technical trail off of Zig-Zag, we'll show you the progress on that soon.
