New details about the new Quarry Trails Metro Park have recently emerged, including information about mountain bike trails, climbing walls, and a timeline for groundbreaking.
Metro Park executive director Tim Moloney announced $400,000 will be spent to build three to five mountain bicycling trails, complete with viewing areas, reports This Week News. The trails will vary in difficulty, with some including jumps, ramps, and obstacles. They’ll be three-quarters of a mile to a mile long.
Moloney said the course could be open by this fall.
