I think this is great. I might offer this - grab some knowledge online (there are some links on the IMBA site) about building sustainable trails. Hoping not to sound condescending, but there is more than just cutting through an area to make a sustainable trail. Building a well thought out sustainable trail lasts a whole lot longer, takes less maintenance after erosion and poor user use, or over use. You can then make it as hard as it needs to be, but with a sustainable base. Also watch for "Trail Building Classes" offered by IMBA - they recently had one at Santos, we've had them here before - and go check it out. You get to learn with the best, and ride the trails you work on! Having a good discussion prior to trail building on what is to be expected helps the understanding process too, so when the trail bosses are discussing what to do that day - ask questions if needed. Sometimes the desired plan doesn't pan out, so alterations happen and a trail can experience a few changes to make it right.
With more people stepping up to the plate to build and MAINTAIN the trails once built this will only make the trails and this club a much better product for all to enjoy. Let the excitement build!
