The summer of 2019 will bring a relocated trailhead to the Pleasant View trails.  There will be some inconvenience over the summer, but in the long run we'll have a much better set up.  We'll post updates as work progresses.  Let us know if you have questions.

You can see the proposed plan here: https://www.madcitydirt.com/index.php?topic=4086.0.  It is liable to change a bit, but this is the general idea.  Details on the new pump track are being worked out, but were working hard to make it an all-weather surface; construction of it is planned for 2020.

Thanks for the update!  In the mean time, is there access (by bike) off of Hwy 14?  I see the road that starts at OW storage, and could easily follow it and get to the trail, but I wanted to check if there was any official access agreement before charging ahead.

There is nothing official.  Some land needs to transfer ownership to build the road, I'm not sure if that has already happened or is in the works.

So obviously, the new trailhead didn't get built in 2019.  The plan is to get it in in 2020, and those plans are moving ahead during the pandemic.  Hopefully things resolve themselves in such a way to have that realized.  When it goes in, we're hoping to be ready with plans and funding for the new pump track; keep an eye out for opportunities to help!
