Let’s Work Together
SORBA-Huntsville works with our local land managers at Monte Sano State Park and the Land Trust of Huntsville and North Alabama to construct and maintain sustainable trails. Sustainable trails last a long time and require minimal maintenance reducing trail damage, protecting the environment, and enhancing visitor enjoyment. Trail Maintenance Days are announced on the web site calendar and Facebook.
Trail Projects Coordination
All trail work is coordinated through the SORBA-Huntsville Board of Directors. The Trails Chairman is the point of contact for all trail building. The Trails Chairman:
- Ensures project plans meet IMBA standards
- Gains approval from land managers for projects
- Organizes and facilitates project leaders and crew leaders
- Tracks volunteer hours spent on trail building and maintenance
Use of our local trails is a privilege. It is extremely important that all users respect the authority of the Park and Land Trust land managers in planning projects. If you have any projects that you would like to put forth, e-mail the SORBA-Huntsville Trail Chairman.
Unapproved trail construction is not sanctioned by SORBA-Huntsville, however, this practice is often associated with our club. Poor trail construction reflects badly on our mountain biking community and can produce unsafe, unsustainable trails that are detrimental both to our sport and our reputation. The Board and Trails Chairman must approve trail construction and improvements.
