Trail Nerds Play hard and work hard!

If you've ever run with us Trail Nerds, then you know that our trails are in good shape. Partially because we keep so much traffic on them, but also because we build them to stand up to the elements while remaining as natural as possible. We don't want to have too much of an impact on the land that gives us so much enjoyment.

This past weekend, there were several workdays around our area. One of those was down in Fall River Lake State Park near Fall River, KS. If you've never heard of it, don't worry. Neither have most people in the surrounding area. It's a beautiful park with a good sampling of various terrains to enjoy.

As you can see from the picture, it turned onto quite a snowy day. The weather ended up cutting our work time short due to safety reasons, but we still got about 4.5 miles of initial ground breaking done with the Kansas Single Track Society and the Kansas Trail Council organized by Mike Goodwin.

This project is planned in four phases and total mileage planned is around 31 miles. This is going to be a beautiful trail system worth making a short trip to experience!
