Pump tracks are a great way for riders to increase their skills in a low-risk environment. In most cases, however, they require regular maintenance to keep them shaped correctly and at the proper moisture level.
When faced with the desire to create a pump track at Reimers Ranch in Travis County, Texas, the Austin Ridge Riders proposed a wooden structure to reduce the maintenance load. Trail Solutions, in partnership with fineGRAIN, designed a low-impact wooden pump track that integrates into the oak woodland landscape. Lead by Trail Specialist Chris Leman, the project is rapidly advancing.
