Bike Patrol Partners with TrailMix
TrailMix Chair, Sandy Freethey, has added an update on the Moab Bike Patrol as a standing monthly agenda item. In our new partnership, patrollers are submitting detailed descriptions of trail maintenance needs observed while patrolling so that the TrailMix crew can correct the observed deficiencies observed.  The partnership is expected to help keep Moab’s extensive trail system in great condition.

TrailMix plans, builds, and maintains non-motorized trails for mountain biking, hiking, Nordic skiing, climbing access, and equestrian use. For more information see: http://www.grandcountyutah.net/223/Trail-Mix-Committee
