Approved: The Lawler Extension
New Trail Anticipated to be Complete by Fall 2016
Disciples of Dirt are pleased to announce that after several years of dreaming, discussing, planning, and inspecting, the Lawler extension project has finally been approved! Even better, there is already a final design for the trail and work has begun on clearing of the corridor. We are officially under way on this thing!
When the extension is complete, Lawler will be two miles longer and wind through some steep, rugged, and fun terrain. The extension eliminates all but 140 meters or so of gravel road allowing mountain bikers to finish the ride on sweet, sweet singletrack.
A big high-five to everyone who worked so hard on this project and made the dream a reality. Special thanks to Kevin Rowell, our friend and mountain bike advocate at the USFS, and to Derrick Bell, Jason Boone, Erin Hooten, Paul Timm and Kraig Brockelman who all lent their expertise and spent countless hours pushing this through the system. And thank you in advance to our hardworking volunteers who will be out there this summer clearing, digging and moving rocks so that by this fall we will have a beautiful new trail to ride! Be sure to check our calendar for upcoming trailwork dates.
