I noticed one of the towns that applied for an IMBA Trail Accelerator Grant is Festus. Anyone know what the plan is there? Always good to see the possibility if new trails.

 

The program is now available nationwide, and in this round, we received 22 applications from across the country, bringing the application total to almost 60 proposals. Communities who applied in this round include Hot Springs and Mena, Arkansas; Page and Prescott, Arizona; Escondido and Santa Clarita, California; Tallahassee, Florida; Festus, Missouri; Starkville, Mississippi; Canton, North Carolina; Arroyo Hondo, New Mexico; Ely, Nevada; Bowling Green, Ohio; Reading and Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania; Spearfish, South Dakota; El Paso, Texas; Farmimgton, Utah; Ashland, Wisconsin; Berkley Springs, Marlinton, West Virginia University-Morgantown, West Virginia; and Sheridan, Wyoming.

Very interesting. I live in Hillsboro and, as far as I know, we do not have any mountain bike trails in Jefferson County. I would be great to have some down this way.

From the horses mouth: Off of Plattin Rd down here in Festus...we have a 750 acre chunk that we’re planning on turning into a park

Possibly a pumptrack down the metaphorical road
