    Looks like Bracken is getting some new trails!

    Brevard City Council passed a resolution of support Monday night for three new trails in Bracken Preserve:

    1) "The Ridge Trail" which will follow the ridgeline to the north and west sides of the property, connecting the top of Bracken Mountain Trail to Brushy Creek Trail;
    2) "The Downhill Trail" which will be an alternative route for most of the upper section of Bracken Mountain Trail and by the sounds of it could quite possibly be a bike only downhill-specific trail; and
    3) "The Climbing Trail" which will offer a slightly easier climb up from the parking area.

    Look out for work days in the coming months as the City will likely use the same volunteer-heavy approach that they used for the first round of trail construction.

    I heard they were considering a jump line at one point, is that still on the table or is that part of one of the proposed trails?

    A jump line would likely not be possible in Bracken. Bringing in the dirt needed would be difficult to pull off under the Clean Water Management Trust Fund conservation easement that's on the property. Perhaps this rumor stems from "the downhill trail" term.

    They were scoping for a jump trail not long ago. Not a rumor but I donít know if itís being followed through or not.

    Any updates on the new trails? I've seen some new pink flags on the ridgeline and Brushy.
