A vital component of many trail construction projects is youth core groups. Staffed by youths aged 16 - 22, and led by trained leaders, these individuals provide much of the muscle that results in fun mountain bike trails. Trail Solutions is proud to partner with these dedicated, hardworking kids, including Eagle Scouts from the Boy Scouts of America. This article details how Trail Solutions work with youth core groups can not only create new trails but change the lives of adolescents and young adults.
