When our local trails shut down due to COVID restrictions in 2020, I decided to build a mountain bike trail of our own. For three months, I scoped potential lines, routed and rerouted segments, dug like mad, dug some more, and ultimately created Inferno. With the help and expertise of a whole crew of friends of course. Thanks Aaron, Keith, James, Dev, Phil, Jake, Nick, Erik, and the whole group for all the hard work.
The trail is pretty unique: there are tons of chutes and steep sections, some funky jumps and drops, huge wall rides, and brown pow from top to bottom. Below is a POV of the final product and some photos from the build process.
