After months of hard work, the Blue Mountain Bike Park is getting ready to unveil two freshly revamped trails. Alongside John Cowan and the crew from Gravity Logic, our Trail Crew has been putting in long days to get these trails ready for public consumption following the initial phase of our Bike Park revitalization which was completed last summer.

The second phase of the project has seen the Trail Crew focusing on two trails; a Black Diamond Special Terrain trail called H2O and an Intermediate trail called Minion's Rush. Both trails put a serious emphasis on flow and will allow riders to spend countless hours working on their bike-handling skills. H2O has been built to cater to advanced freeriders. Wooden features, and takeoffs of all shapes and sizes will set this trail apart as a "must ride" for mountain bikers from across the province. Minion's Rush picks up where the Groove and the Gulch leave off, giving intermediate riders a place to develop their skills and to begin to work on their air awareness.

The Blue Mountain Bike Park will be open, weather and conditions permitting, from 10am to 5pm, Friday to Sunday weekly for the remainder of the season starting Friday, September 5.

 The work looks top notch from trailside. This line really signals Blue's commitment to MTB, couldn't be happier. Thanks and thanks to Gravity Logic (I believe?)

 I was there the day minion rush opened up, very flowy and smooth lots of table tops to get better at jumping and not technical in terms of braking (in fact braking is almost unrequired). Its one of those trails that makes you want to go back to it every time just to see how much faster you can go. Overall very easy track but good for learning to manage air time and fast

 The Trail Crew is pushing hard to get it open within the next week. A few wet weeks gave them a bit of a setback, but they're back on track now.

 The Trail Crew is working hard to put the finishing touches on H2O, and it should be ready to ride sometime within the week. We'll have a more definite date soon, so keep an eye on the Blue Mountain Bike Park Facebook page for updates.
