Other Trail Announcements:

Breaking Ground on a New Trail: We have selected a trail builder and we are preparing to break ground on our new trail on July 1st called the Slate Creek Mountain Bike Trail. We had several awesome trail builders who bid to do this project and it was one of the toughest choices we’ve had to make as a trails board. After a lot of deliberation and discussion, we selected Bob Radke of Creative Trails to be our trail builder. Bob Radke has built some impressive trails across Utah and in other states, but Utah mountain bikers will know him best for his work on the High Star Ranch Mountain Bike Trails, and notably his namesake trail at High Star, “Radke,” which draws mountain bikers from all over the state to test their skills. We will be looking for volunteers for a couple of trail work days to help clean up this trail after it has been cut. We will announce those trail work dates soon. To volunteer, please contact Adam Brown of the South Summit Trails Foundation at: 435-901-0034, or reply to this email. Some of you have already expressed your interest to help, and we will be contacting you soon, thank you.

Grants Recently Awarded: The South Summit Trails Foundation has received 3 grants to build the Slate Creek Mtn Bike Trail!! We want to thank the Recreational Trails Program for a $40,000 grant we received, another thank you to the Summit County Restaurant Tax Grant for a $27,000 grant we received, and a thank you to the Park City Community Foundation for a grant we received for $3,000. All of the proceeds from these grants will go towards the construction of this new trail. We are so thankful for these funding resources that are made available to us by our Federal, State, and County governments, and from local non-profits like the Park City Community Foundation. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this money available to improve the quality of life of everyone who uses these trails now and for generations and generations to come!

We have postponed our Annual Trailfest & Chili Cook-Off until the fall. The fall date will be announced soon.
