Trails Update 6/4/21
This year’s Spence Spring build season is complete with the addition of a 1 mile easy walking/stroller loop next to the HWY 140 Trailhead. This loop – called Red Rover – is isolated from the rest of the trail system to minimize mixing with other trail traffic. It is Ok for bikes, but as the trail builder said “it’s best if you are 4 or 64.” The build on the flow trail called Speed King has been slower than expected related to lots of rocks and a lack of moisture. At present there is about 2/3 of a mile of the trail open to use now, accessible from two points on South Ridge Tr. The access points are signed. Another portion could be opened if we get some decent moisture. At present that portion of the trail is just too soft and loose to ride. Pray for rain. The sections of the trail at the top of the hill will be finished in the fall once fire restrictions are eased.
In Partnership with the City of Klamath Falls we are also working to complete a mountain bike skills area in Moore Park. Work on this project started at the beginning of June and is supposed to finish in Early July. The work is being done by Dirt Mechanics – the same group that does the Spence builds. These trails will be inside of the main walking loop above the Gingerbread house, next to the park maintenance area. This will include jumps, berms, drops, corners, and obstacles appropriate to various skill levels of riders. This will be a good place to hone your riding skills or just to have a little fun.
We are always fundraising to help up expend and improve the local trail systems. Please join KTA to help improve our local trails.
