A new trail is forming at Camp Robinson. Volunteer built. Eight people, and a couple of dogs, showed up to work. There is more to do to complete this new section. If you want to be among the first to ride some of this beautiful new trail, come out to help at one of our trail love days. Like us on Facebook to keep up on upcoming trail love days.
It was a 3 Crew Day
Nine volunteers showed up this past Saturday to work on trails at Camp Robinson. Sizing up the immediate needs of the trail, the volunteers split into three groups and attacked the day's work. The teams completed a reroute on 5 mile along with some trail cleaning plus a bridge and rock work on Can O' Corn. Check out this quick video of how the new bridge was built.

Cleaning up at Boyle
Yesterday, Central Arkansas Trail Alliance Vice-President, Mike Mitchell, organized a trail love day at Boyle Park to finish up blowing leaves off the trails and to clear some fallen trees, particularly on the more technical sections on the eastern sides of the park. Thanks to everyone who was able to help out. Check out some of the before and after photos from volunteer, Eric Crawford.
Now go out and have a blast and don't forget the trail love day next weekend at Camp Robinson.
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.
