The SBTS and TAMBA crew have been really busy at work on the Lower Corral Trail project since May 5th. We had a super trail day on May 17th with over 60 fun loving volunteers but we still need your help. Come out and dig with us again on this trail day, and see the progress of this cool new trail in Tahoe!


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Details:
• Lower Corral Trail will be reworked into a Flow Trail with purpose built fun features for mountain bike including high wall berms, rock jumps, tabletops and log rides.

• Corral Trail is one of the most accessible and popular mountain bike trails in all of Tahoe. The trail is suitable for everyone from beginners to expert riders. The trailhead also serves as a hub of the mountain bike community, close to the largest population center in all of Tahoe. Improvements to Corral trail have been made by the USFS in the past eight years primarily focused on increasing the sustainability of the trail. Now TAMBA will introduce new mountain bike specific elements on the trail that will further elevate the trail’s status.

• Once complete Corral Trail will be a model project for purpose built mountain bike features on a legal trail in a National Forest. Corral Trail will remain open to all current users including dirt bikes, mountain bikes, hikers and equestrians.

• The SBTS professional trail crew will be working side-by-side with TAMBA’s trail crews to build this new trail.

• Corral Trail will be open the entire time, although it is advised that people take an alternate route such as Incense Cedar Trail to avoid delaying construction activities. We are all very excited to be a part of this project and making something incredibly fun for the mountain biking community.

Timeframe: Construction will start Monday, May 5, and will proceed for approximately 4 weeks. The paid workers will be working 10 hours days Monday through Thursday.

Project Team: Henry O’Donnell – SBTS Supervisor… Kris Morehead – TAMBA Crew… Benny McGinnis – TAMBA Crew… Kevin Joell – Part Time TAMBA Crew… Ben Fish – TAMBA Project Manager... Jacob Quinn – USFS Project Manager
