Sabattis Mountain Bike Trail construction will get underway this fall under the guidance of Steve Ovitt of Wilderness Property Management who is known locally for building Gurney Lane, Inlet Mountain Bike Trails at Fern Park and Mountain Bike Trails in North Creek. Phase one will see a build out of 2K of trails. Two loops, one rated “easy” and a second, intermediate trail will be stacked out from the trailhead up and down the mountainside. These trails will utilize the convenience of parking and restrooms of the Pavilion as a staging area and anchor for the trailhead.
Sustainable trail design will be the priority design for the trails, with ample drainage to ensure a long-term life for the trails. Riding features such as rollers and rock ride overs will be incorporated into the trail as will ride-arounds. The proximity of Mt. Sabattis to the community makes it an ideal location for riders to enjoy the great outdoors and the local amenities when they are done riding.
Funds raised at this event will help purchase materials for bridges and signage. Look for phase one of the trails to be ready to ride before the snow flies.
