Red Bud Run is a modest high quality trout stream in the Shenandoah River basin. Recently acquired by Virginia's Dept of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF), Trail Solutions' developed and implemented a trail plan that both serves park neighbors and supports conservation and education efforts along the stream itself.
TS' Rich Edwards and Dan Hudson made short work of the approx 3,500' of classic bench cut singletrack. With the stream always over our shoulders, care had to be taken to manage spoils. Everything was finished and buttoned up as we went. Mulched and seeded, with steeper fill slopes finished off with erosion control matting just to be sure.
With schools back in session any day, great to know our tasty singletrack will also be used to introduce young students to the beauty of a clean stream as well.
Thanks to our partners at VDGIF and The Opequon Watershed, Inc.
