Trail Update

Greetings Singletrack Advocates,

On a recent weekend, six of us sacrificed a weekend to blast up to Fairbanks to check out Jon Underwood’s latest trail project, the Ester Dome Singletrack Trails. For those of you who don’t know, Jon built the Hillside Trails in 2008. Let me just say that since then he has improved his technique. This video says it all: FLOW! Thanks to Joe Campos for videoing the fun and editing this promo. We can’t wait to design and building in Kincaid next summer.

The Parks & Rec Commission passed the preferred concept of the Section 36 Master Plan draft put forward by the Citizen’s Advisory Committee. The next stop is the Planning and Zoning Commission, and from there it might have to go before the Assembly. Stay tuned on this process—we are getting closer to being able to build more trails on the South Hillside. Many thanks to Steering Committee member Steve Ryan for speaking on STA’s behalf at the PRC.
