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.

Planned and designed a new singletrack trail system in the Superior National Forest. The focus of the trail system was on providing a high-quality mountain bicycling experience while respecting existing hiking-only trail locations.
Performed trail development training for Maryland-based trail crews. Training focused on understanding non-motorized trail users, designing multi-use trail systems, and trail construction, including rock armoring techniques (stone pitching, flagstone paving) and water crossings.
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.
