Heyward Community Forest_Song Mountain Trail System

A Project of Charlottesville Area Mountain Bike Club
Charlottesville, VA

$ 7000.00 raised of $ 7000.00

This project represents the third phase of the Song Mountain Loop trail system in the newly acquired Heyward Community Forest. This new bike-optimized, shared use trail, named Voodoo Child, is an arterial trail that will connect Heyward Community Forest with Ragged Mountain Recreation Area, completing 2.5 miles and expanding day-riding experiences in the Charlottesville area.

The Voodoo Child Trail will be built with features appropriate to an intermediate skill level, including larger berms, small jumps and technical sections.

Charlottesville Area Mountain Bike Club (CAMBC) has received a proposal from AMPPL Trails, LLC (a Professional Trail Builders Association member company), for trail planning, design, and construction. AMPPL has been integral in the design, planning, and construction of the first 2 phases of this project, which have been primarily funded by CAMBC.

This phase of the project combines professionally contracted trail builders with volunteers to further connect our volunteers, and provide a level of ownership of the process, to the trail system. This ensures a long-term volunteer commitment to this new riding area.
