SORBA Woodstock receives approval to build Rope Mill MTB trails!

Cheers! That's right folks! Today we received approval from the US Army Corp of Engineers (USACOE) to start building the Taylor Randahl Memorial Trails at Olde Rope Mill Park in Woodstock. The City of Woodstock, working with the http://greenprintsalliance.org , has secured $150K in funding to build out the proposed 10 mile trail system. The plans were submitted via the City of Woodstock and the COE has finally cleared the first trail of the project and signed off for us to start! This first trail, 5.2 miles in length, will be build out as a race course trail. Not only do you get everyday riding, but will allow race events to be held locally and more often with better location/amenities. This will be the first of 4 separate loop trails totaling 10 miles overall. Once this is built out over the next two years, we will work to connect this trail system to Blankets Creek to give you a 30 mile interconnected urban trail system. We are exciting to start this project and the wait is finally over.

The first work party will be held on Feb 20th from 9am - 1pm at Olde Rope Mill Park in Woodstock. Bring your gas blowers and lopers if you have them. We will be clearing off the ground and clipping back trees to make room for the machines to start cutting the trailbed.

Join us this Monday night at Summits Wayside Tavern on Eagle Drive (across from Etowah High School) @ 7pm for more information on this and other great things coming.

Now is the time when we need you the most. Come help us build out what will become one of the most legendary urban trail systems in the Southeast.

Thanks for your support!
