Guest Blog: Good Trails Come to Those Who Wait

05/03/22 Brundage Mountain Blog

Imagine if you can, a rolling, singletrack ribbon of dirt winding its way down a mountainside through an alpine meadow and into a forest of aspen and evergreens dotted with granite outcrops and perfectly constructed swoopy turns. Turns for miles, and every time you change directions you get another incredible view. That’s a common vision for trail designers and singletrack visionaries across the globe. No matter where you ride, sooner or later you look at an area and think, wow this would make a great spot for a trail. That is exactly how the newest project of the Central Idaho Mountain Bike Association (CIMBA) was conceived back in 2009. It all started with a map, an existing trail system, a new trail system, and the idea of connecting the two. Then press pause…for nine years.
