Kanab Trail Feasibility Study

This past Monday Joey Klein from IMBA’s Trail Solutions rolled into Kanab Utah with the sole purpose of analyzing the area’s mountain bike trails opportunities. The fun part of digging and putting in trails is still a ways off, but as you can see from the above photo, the process always starts with maps. The Kanab Bike Committee gathered in the evening to make suggestions of areas and pinpoint places for Joey to explore over the next few days.

The other, slightly more fun, part of the process is getting boots on the ground and looking at what is really there. A small group gathered in earlier that afternoon to show some of the sights around town. This is where people’s eyes start to light up and the possibilities of where you can put a trail become more apparent.

Kane County holds promise for future trails. The area is beautiful and already has existing infrastructure needed to be a destination. The county is in favor of trails and has had employees at the meetings and involved with the entire process. Having a public officials interested in mountain bike trails and willing to help out is a huge advantage for trail advocates.

We will receive Joey’s final report later this week that will detail the areas surveyed and the possibilities of putting trails in Kane County.

Hopefully we see some new trails soon!

Build. Maintain. Ride.
