The Benefits of Trail Work

Updated: Oct 15, 2019

It's summer and the heat/thunderstorm patterns are emerging. During this time of the year, our trail systems are being used by numerous people, which means a lot of wear and tear. Hobby, Tanglewood and Horizons Parks are popular trails that benefit users who mountain bike, hike and run. Many people assume that each park maintains the trail, but this is not the case. FORBA (Forsyth Off Road Bicycling Association) is a volunteer based organization that is responsible for regular trail maintenance for each park. In order for these trails to continue to benefit all of us, it is important to remember two simple things: Please keep the trails clean, and when there has been more than an inch of rain within 24 hours, let the trails dry before riding them again.
