ETD teamed up with Native Trails to make enhancements to Lake Crabtree’s existing trail network. ETD’s project included design and construction of several mountain bike-focused trails with large berms and rollers. Sump style catchments and drainage pipes were used to create fully insloped turns, offering a riding style previously unavailable to this region. The project also included design and construction of a drainage system and return line for a volunteer-built advanced dirt jump area. The construction team managed water using extensive ditches, large water catchments, and a 24 inch drainage pipe to greatly reduce the maintenance demand of this unique facility.
