WAFTA Helping Draper City Trail Efforts
WAFTA Crew Volunteering to Assist Draper City
WAFTA members attended the trail leader training conducted by Draper City so they can help lead other volunteer groups looking to assist with the Draper City Trails program. Draper City has developed a master trails plan – in conjunction with Joey Klein of IMBA – and is currently working to make their dream a reality. WAFTA hopes to help shape the future of the Draper City trails plan which already includes some ‘downhill/freeride’ specific plans, and will tentatively include a skills park and pump track!
Many organizations are wanting to volunteer time and effort to these trailbuilding efforts, and Draper City was looking for leaders who could guide these groups. Currently, there are many events planned for evenings and weekends already confirmed! Following some classroom instruction, the trail leader volunteers then were taken into the field where they helped a volunteer group work on a brand new section of trail in the area that Draper has designated as open space. This new trail is actually a link to connect the existing Suncrest trails with those in Corner Canyon and the Bonneville Shoreline trail.
Our congratulations to Draper City for their forward thinking with regards to trails and open space, and thanks to the volunteers that make all of this a reality! WAFTA is looking forward to being a partner in developing trails for all to enjoy.
