    This group has an official program partnership contract to build, and administer all aspects of the trails at Amelia Earhart park.

    Our group formally and contractually decide trail schedules, closures (with police enforcement if needed), and all events that take place at the trails.

    This MTBR forum does not allow proper administrative control of inappropriate content, so the trail administrators do not follow or post any new updates here. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    It should also be noted that when trails are deemed to be CLOSED, any rider found in the trails by the park ranger will be issued a citation by the park officer, and police can be called if necessary.

    Thank you to all that continue to support our trails!

    President, Amelia Earhart Mountain Bike Club
    Thanks for the info..

    Can anyone on here confirm this is legit?
    Better 2 ask 4 pardon than 2 ask for permission. Recall that nxt time U feel you have 2 ask ur wife if U can buy something

    Legit in my book. Steve is a first class guy and is doing wonders for Amelia.

    Yeah the trails are in great shape, and the additions are good. I just cannot understand on why he insists on reversing the trail direction. The trail is only at its best in the direction it was designed to be run, reversing it just for the sake of making it different makes it less than its best, and thus adds no value. Whatever... I will ride there when I must. But will frequent the other tracks more often until it changes back.

    Was there today before the downpours, trails are Kicking A$$. I kinda like the change, it becomes a little more challenging as you have to adapt mentally to the different conditions because of the change of directions. Either direction, Amelia Rocks !!!

    I like it being reversed occasionally; it's just a different ride that way, switches things up a bit...

    I agree. I wish more of the trails had the option to switch direction.

    I was here this morning and it's looking great. It's definitely faster this way. 95% of the trail just flows better.

    Could also be, because the trails are rocking right now, and not too much sun, so your able to push harder...or not...

    I finally got a good feel for the trail the original way, now that they reversed I am kinda learning best lines again. I am slower, but it keeps things interesting.
