The Pedal Factory Trail Care Crew ~ Local Trail Building and Maintenance Salisbury, NC
The Pedal Factory, a 501(c)(3) non profit located in Salisbury, NC is now home to The Pedal Factory Trail Care Crew.
For years, a team of dedicated volunteers has worked to build and maintain the trails at Salisbury Community Park. As the Pedal Factory Trail Care Crew, these volunteers will continue to lead maintenance and construction efforts to enhance the park’s trails even more.
This partnership will allow the team to expand its trail work, apply for grant funding to improve outdoor recreation in Salisbury, and provide more active opportunities for fun that both children and adults can enjoy.
More About the Trails at Salisbury Community Park
Through the efforts of volunteers, the trails at Salisbury Community Park have grown by 3+ miles over the last few years. Among the improvements are new singletrack, a jump line, and a flow line. Eagle Scouts from local Boy Scout Troops built one bridge and are planning for another this year that opens up opportunity to grow the trail system.
The park is currently being mapped by Catawba College doing their senior project. Once completed, the map will will show all trails in the park as well as emergency routes, facilities, and key points in the park. As part of the continued trail betterment and expansion at Salisbury Community Park, the jump line and flow trail were completed in early 2019. Since the addition of the jump and flow line, ridership on the trail system has increased substantially, drawing riders from different local and regional areas. The jump line caters to all ages and skill levels and includes many jumps, rollers and berms. The flow line,, which is adjacent to the jump line and also caters to all ages and skill levels, includes rollers and berms to make use of the natural downslope of the terrain. For 2022, the new Green Briar Trail continues this group effort, with the help of funding from Rowan County passing through to the City of Salisbury.
Volunteers worked with Salisbury's Bike Pedestrian and Greenway Committee to contract with local professional trail builder Joseph Litiker of Black Diamond Trail Designs to sculpt a mile of trail that beginning mountain bike riders will love. The new rollers and berms snake through the woods at the park, bringing a fresh challenge for all riders unlike any other trails in the county.
