Blue Mound Trail Reconstruction
by Gary S on September 30, 2016, 03:25 PM

CORP will be professionally rebuilding and realigning about 2/3 mile of the Chert Dip trail, on the northeast side of the main loop around the mound, beginning October 3.  Portions of this trail have eroded badly over the years.  It will be realigned, much more sustainable, longer overall, and a LOT more fun!

CORP has contracted with Travis Bellman, whose notable trail work includes WinMan in north central WI, and also some in Copper Harbor and Marquette, MI. Some portions of the trail may be temporarily closed at times, and we'll post updates as work proceeds.

Now is a great time to ride at Blue Mound State Park, and things continue to improve.  This is only the tip of the iceberg for what CORP has planned.

This project would not have been possible without the generosity and support of the Friends of Blue Mound State Park, contributors to the Machinery Row fundraiser this past spring, our members and sponsors, Tom Griesheimer, and the WI DNR.  Thanks to everyone involved!

Quarry Ridge Northwoods Expansion
by jeffb on September 07, 2016, 06:45 PM

Quarry Ridge is expanding! We'll be adding about 0.4 miles of new trail. The new trail will be intermediate level and expand the cross country loop. The style will be similar to Rewind and Bottoms Up. We will also be rebuilding some other trails in the area as time allows.

Most of the heavy work will be done by machine, but we need volunteers to do hand finishing after the excavator. Digging will start likely on Wednesday, and volunteers are needed starting on Friday and throughout the weekend to finalize the trail. Find Jeff on the excavator for instructions. No experience necessary and tools will be provided. You should bring water, gloves, bug spray, and sunscreen.

Construction will occur October 7-9. Work will occur from roughly 8 am to 7 pm each day.
