Although exciting new greenways within the neighborhood are still to come, we have a great trail playground just across the highway. With both the North and South entrances open, I.C. King Park has grown as a fun, close-in option for biking, trail running, dog walking and fishing.
The Appalachian Mountain Bike Club (AMBC) maintains and upgrades the trails and is hosting a Fall Work Day next Saturday, November 22 from 9 am to 12 noon. We’ll be working on the south side building new bridges across some muddy sections and doing the usual clearing and smoothing of trail spots and switchbacks. Clearing along the entry area and road will be a major endeavor as well – designed to make it look more open and welcoming as you pull in.
Any help is appreciated during the work day – bring gloves and water and we’ll gear you up! Chainsaws and brush blade weedeaters are always useful too! Park and gather on the north side for your assignment – there’s a job for everyone!
