    Dang! That conflagration has even more features in it than Parker's back yard!

    definitely worth taking a bike when I get dragged up there to visit relatives
    May your trails be narrow, crooked, lonesome and dangerous, leading to the most outrageous adventures. Paladin

    Boise=Lots of riders with no riding community
    Seattle=Lots of riders with a strong riding community

    Its amazing what people can accomplish when they work TOGETHER as a riding community.

    That area got a pretty hefty writeup in the latest IMBA trail building guide:
    http://www.imba.com/resources/bike_m...ain_bikes.html

    Books and reading are good things.
    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    Good find Surly. I found a website last year that detailed how they put this area together. Lots of helpers and good organization.

    It took them a hella long time to get approvals for that. The project has been going on now for 2 years. Longer, if you count the lobbying for the levy that helped fund that project.

    Check out:

    Communities that come together like that are truly awesome. They truly love their trails because they know it is a give-to-get relationship.

    Very cool. 2 years actually doesn't seem like that long for a project of that scale. We're just now wrapping up the McCall Skatepark after 5+ years of fundraising, permitting, fundraising, design, fundraising, redesign, fundraising, construction.

    That is cool stuff. Please don't turn this into a flame war but this seems like where Bogus freeride could go over time.... Something for most everyone but lots of stuff that is not for everyone.
    Oh sh!+ just force upgraded to cat1. Now what?
    Best thing about an ultra marathon? I just get to ride my bike for X hours!

    Something like that has got to cost some serious money. But then again, be hella worth it.

    The group that does help is great and is SOOOO dedicated!!! '

    The lobbying for the levy that helped fund that project was not accounted for in any of the articles. I bet the true cost (i.e. total man hours for lobbying, PR, construction, materials, etc.) is around 20k or 30k...if not more.
