This summer new non-motorized trail is rapidly forming at Mt. Emily Recreation Area (MERA). La Grande Ride has tracked the trails as they are opening, with The MERA Map now reflecting new trail that is rough but rideable. New trails include:
- Indian Rock
- Upper Indian Rock (Excavator working on it currently)
- New Cougar Trail (a reroute of the old trail)
Here is an example of how one can now ride a big climb and descend loop.
Special thanks for trailwork by Claren Paroz (on the excavator), Bill Gerst, Howard Brown, MaryEllen LaBerge, and Bart Barlow headed up by Union County and Sean Chambers.
