17 volunteers built 3/4 miles of amazing trail along the rim of the Grand Mesa through Black Timber, Aspen Stands, Flower Filled Meadows with views of Delta County Valley, West Elk Mountains and San Juan Mountains.
The Palisade Rim Trail is now open for bikers and hikers! This weekend more than two dozen trail builders showed up to work on several remaining sections of the singletrack. Thanks to great volunteer turnout and perfect soil condition the work was completed shortly after the lunch break. There is still some work to be done, but the new trail is now ready for recreational traffic.
Over the course of the weekend the volunteer trail builders together with BLM officers made modest but steady progress building highly technical single track near the town of Palisade. The trail promises to be a new signature ride with spectacular views, challenging climbs and exciting technical moves.
July 16, 2011 was another successful day of trail work at Grand Mesa. The weather cooperated again and although the turnout was modest this time, the crew was able to make good progress. At the end of the day the total length of Mesa Top Trail was over 2 miles.
About two dozen volunteers showed up on July 9, 2011 to participate in the construction of new Mesa Top trail in Grand Mesa National Forest atop of the world’s largest flat-top mountain. Together with the core crew many new trail building enthusiasts have completed more than 1.5 miles of spectacular single track.
