Working under Rock City Construction of Franklin, TN, Singletrack Trails, Kay-Linn Enterprises, and Applied Trails Research recently joined forces in Nashville, TN to complete the initial flagging of new mountain bike trails is the City of Nashville’s premier park property, Percy Warner Park.
This collaboration of effort is the fruit of the advocacy efforts of SORBA-Middle Tennessee to get the City of Nashville to commit to a trail a trail construction project within the Metro limits. This project also addresses the work of the Mayor’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee to create more ways for the citizens of the City of Nashville to recreate in a non-motorized manner within the Metro boundary.
Our palette was a small 120 acre parcel in the northwestern portion of the park. Our team did our best to maximize the useable terrain to create a trail system that will be durable for all seasons and disperse a larger amount of users around the trail system without constantly waiting to pass other trail users.
Now that the layout is on the ground, the City of Nashville staff will review our alignments. With luck, Singletrack Trails and a crew of fantastic PTBA members from the region will be on the ground in April and May to complete the build out of the trail system.
