Looking to enhance their tourism options, the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Lincoln Ranger District (USFS), retained IMBA Trail Solutions to develop a comprehensive mountain bicycle trails master plan. The result was a 50+ mile system for a range of riding skills, with an emphasis on trail connections from town into the backcountry so that Lincoln would remain the hub.

Constructed multi-use singletrack trail to connect the resort's base to the mid-mountain lodge. Work including mechanized tread excavation, hand finishing of tread, armoring/rockwork, and training of hand crews. Equipment included mini-excavator, plate compactor, and power totter.
Located right in the heart of Boulder, Colorado, the facility is destined to be a hub of the cycling community. After breaking ground, locals knew the project was going to be big when it started with bulldozers and excavators, rather than shovels and rakes.

Let’s face it - expert riders are underserved in the sport of mountain biking. At IMBA, we think seriously about planning for the folks who continue to reach the highest levels of the stratosphere.
Fortunately, Rapid City, South Dakota has a lot to offer. To start, it’s blessed with an outdoor-minded community who embraces trails. It also has the highest peaks east of the Rockies. And right downtown one will find Hansen-Larson Memorial Park, a 300-acre oasis with over 10 miles of trails for hikers, trail runners and mountain bikers.

Pronounced “Her-ah-kun” by the locals, this trail system sits at the edge of the Colorado Plateau and the Great Basin. Grand mesas, vertical rock formations, and deep canyons combine with extinct volcanoes and vast rolling arroyos, bringing together a taste of all that southwest Utah’s Color Country has to offer. The Hurricane Cliffs Trail Network strings together a 21-mile loop, formed by four segments: the Hurricane Rim, JEM, Gould and Gould Rim trails.
The IMBA Epics now include a ride in fabled Durango. This southwest Colorado mountain town is surrounded by countless miles of wooded singletrack - a primary reason why so many top mountain bike pros have settled here. The Epic pick is the Telegraph Trail network, a local's favorite.
When John Fremont stumbled upon Lake Tahoe in 1844, he was searching for a mythical river. What he found was even better. The azure lake is home to spectacular scenery and fantastic riding, courtesy of the Tahoe Rim Trail.
The Rim Trail climbs high above alpine lakes, through thick conifer stands and across steep, flower-strewn slopes. This segment is celebrated for magnificent views, stretching across Lake Tahoe and the high Sierra and past the jagged ranges of the Great Basin. The terrain is variable, with rocks, switchbacks and plenty of climbing.
