Question?
« on: December 04, 2007, 09:38:55 PM »
So they are working with the county here to build a new freeride park at an old rock mine and I was told that they first offered the opportunity to Swamp but Swamp declined it--so Ridge Riders is doing it. Anyone know why that is?

Could be that SWAMP already has hundreds of miles of trails to maintain.

The Ridge Riders also maintained the TOE, prior to it being closed down. They have some experience in that area.

Oh, and it could be that there are over 100 miles of trail that SWAMP already covers. Just like Firebiker said.

Just curious what county? Where did you here this?

Sounds like the Gran Canyon deal. It's supposed to be XC trails and a freeride park.

It is in Hernando County, off of Mundon Hill Rd.

I heard it from the guy who started Ridge Riders.

Looks like a great location. Evidently there used to be a few trails there years ago when it was privately owned. You could pay the guy who owned it a few bucks and he would let you ride there.

I also have the codes to the Vortex gates and will sell them to the highest bidder!!

Yup, that's the place - Gran Canyon MTB Park. I cut my MTB teeth there in the mid 90s and haven't been back since 2001 when the disc golfers took over. I can't wait to get in there and get that place opened back up!
