Dig in! – Alameda Park

Donate in December to help unlock IMBA funding

Trail Pittsburgh has worked in partnership with Butler County on the planning, design and construction of singletrack trails at Alameda Park. Over 20 miles of sustainable loop trails were proposed in the county’s 2014 Master Plan. Trail Pittsburgh has constructed 6.5 miles of so far utilizing both a professional trails contractor and a skilled volunteer stewardship team. Alameda Singletrack is a unique trail system of sustainably constructed, bike-optimized trails for different user groups and skill levels. Trail Pittsburgh currently has $10,000 in funding and materials to continue work through 2017. With additional funding and community support, the group hopes to complete phase two in 2018-2019. Once the singletrack trails are complete, a downhill trail, skills park and pumptrack will be added in phase three. Trail Pittsburgh stewards contributed over 2,000 volunteer hours in 2017. Alameda Park is quickly gaining popularity in the local trail community and is providing a tourism boost to Butler County and the region.

Make a donation today and help Trail Pittsburgh raise funds for this great project.
