HAMMOND HILL PARK - MICHIGAN
Client: Western Michigan Mountain Bike Association
Scope: What was once a sparsely used park is now a vibrant oasis in central Michigan. In an effort to give an economic boost to the small city of Hastings, we were contracted by the local mountain bike club to design and build trails in an underutilized pocket park just three miles from the central business district so that mountain bikers - and other users - could enjoy them. We constructed six miles of beginner and intermediate level multi-use trails for both summer and winter use. The Western Michigan Mountain Bike Association not only keeps the trails clear and open in the summertime, but it also snow grooms the trails for use by fat bikers and others in the winter.
