The New York City Mountain Biking Association is building a new 1,800-foot trail, the Fort George Connection, in Highbridge Park where Manhattan’s only legal mountain bike trail network is found. The trail will act as a major junction, connecting three existing trails across the upper and lower sections of the park. This vital link between the more heavily used sections of the park and the historically misused sections will increase circulation throughout the trail system and, it is hoped, replace negative use such as illegal dumping and illicit drug use with healthy recreation.
NYCMTB is seeking funds to host seminars on crib wall construction so volunteers can build a needed crib wall for the Fort George Connection Trail. Funding will also be used to acquire additional materials for the crib wall.
