Client: Trail Conservancy
Location: Emmitsburg, Maryland
Elevated Trail Design was subcontracted by the nonprofit organization, Trail Conservancy, to aid in the construction of this mountain bike-centric trail system. The terrain in Emmitsburg is classic east coast hardwood forest with rich soils and rocky terrain. Elevated’s work included crew leadership, bike park-style trail, typical machine-built trail, machine rock work, challenge line integration, hand-built trail. This project is a great example of ETD’s ability to collaborate with different types of builders and bring their unique style into any trail network.
Update: Elevated Trail Design returned to Emmitsburg in summer 2015 to aid in the construction of a 2 mile beginner trail. Rocky terrain and huge fern glades made for tough building and a beautiful final product that is great for beginners and experts alike.
