Work on the Payette Lake Trail set a nearly furious pace towards the end of the summer. After carefully planning the route with the experts at Trail Solutions, CIMBA volunteers not only cleared nearly the entire path through thick underbrush, but completed 2.2 miles of rider ready trail. We are on pace to finish the trail on the West side of Payette Lake next summer.
After volunteers worked more than 450 hours on the trail with hand tools and a mini trail bulldozer, we handed the baton off to a trail crew from Northwest Youth Corps.This hard working ten person team worked for ten days, extending the finished trail by another mile and putting in serious work to polish previous work and cut new trail corridor. There is still work to be done on the West side of the lake to connect the new singletrack to the existing Rim Trail, but the finish line is getting closer! We are about 50% finished with Phase 1!
