CAMBA Reports Progress at Mt Ashwabay Mountain Bike Trails
The Mt. Ashwabay team has made good progress. Work started as soon as they could get at the trail following the record winter. Using the mini-excavator another ¾ mile of trail was roughed in. Weekly work nights have been focused on finish work and other hand building. With upwards of five miles of singletrack at Mt. Ashwabay, a new map has been developed and the Mt. Ashwabay Cluster will be officially included on the CAMBA Area Map and Trail Guide.
