Below is our calendar of upcoming events and a sampling of trails we've designed, built and maintained. We can do it ourselves, or partner with our Associate. Elijah Evans Excavating, to provide services to all trail projects, big and small.
This was how it started for us. We enjoyed riding and trail running, so we joined groups and offered help with maintinance. This led to events. Events led to classes. Classes led to International Mountain Biking Association compliance and certification in regard to building sustainable (as they call them, "Funstainable") trails.
So here we are, years later and lots of miles, trips, earthmoving, and bush-whacking under out belts.
Helped map, plan, build, maintain, promote and monetize these trails to benefit the local community: namely the Montour Area Recreation Commission and Geisinger's Children's Miracle Network. We were involved in the original Organizer Team that created the Tour de Tykes Mountain bike race. We have been involved in semi-annual IMBA inspired trail rebuilds and repairs to improve the less sustainable original offerings and replace them with more reasonable and durable options.
This project began about 14 years ago. The idea of re-establishing the old Canal Tow Path, as a trail for recreation activites. We have been involved in this trail since the beginning and are please to say that all roadblocks have been removed, surveying is complete, and municipal entities now either own all the land needed to make the trail a success, or have variances or agreements to proceed.
Primary planning for the project is now in the hands of the Montour Area Recreation Commission (MARC). We intend to stay involved until completion in whatever ways are necessary. You can follow the project and learn all the details at the MARC webpage dedicated to the initiative.
The oldest purpose built rail-trail in the United States (and most likely the world) is in our backyard and we've had the pleasure of making it a very popular local attraction for people both near and far. We've been involved since the days when the Borough was forced to consider closing the park due to limited maintenance funds. The Montour Area Recreation Commission (MARC - then Montour County Recreation Authority) was tasked with finding solutions: and solutions were found. David Decoteau was the President of MCRA at that time, and later became the first Director of MARC.
Here are some pictures of the progress of Hess Field during our involvement:
