CURT GOWDY & GLENDO STATE PARKS
WYOMING STATE PARKS TRAIL CONSTRUCTION
2006 - 2015
Building upon an established, successful relationship with Wyoming State Parks, Historic Sites, and Trails, Singletrack Trails won the competitive bid to begin construction on 6 miles of new trail spanning Curt Gowdy and Glendo State Parks. This project was expanded to field flag 20 miles of proposed trail to be constructed during Phase 2 of Glendo State Park’s trail build plan.
In 2010, we completed the build using a combination of machine and hand construction techniques. In addition to the trail work, our crew supervised and worked alongside two Wyoming Conservation Crews for a total of four weeks.

WORKING WITH BLM & COPMOBA
Working for Bicycle Colorado as the prime trail building contractor, Singletrack Trails coordinated with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Colorado Plateau Mountain Bike Trail Association (COPMOBA) to implement shared-use, non-motorized portions of the Bangs Canyon Trail Plan, better known as the Lunch Loops at the Tabeguache trailhead. With the help of local riders, Singletrack Trails planned and built the first official freeride trail on BLM land in the country, Free Lunch. In addition to Free Lunch, Singletrack Trails provided staff labor and volunteer support to complete 15 miles of trail re-routes in the Lunch Loop area. Then we got to ride it all.
The quality of the construction and innovative use of the park’s natural features has resulted in it being a highlighted trail destination in Outside, Men’s Journal, Mountain Bike and Bike magazines. The trail system at Curt Gowdy State Park was designated an IMBA Epic ride in 2009.
