The Fort Worth Mountain Bikers' Association (FWMBA) will be having a Workfest to begin construction on a new 5.5 mile extension to the Gateway Park Mountain Bike Trail. The Workfest will be Saturday, November 5, 2011 starting at 9 AM.
Please note, this is not an extension of the paved Trinity Trails, this is a off-road, dirt trail for mountain bikes. There is an existing 4 mile mountian bike trail in Gateway Park (also created by the FWMBA) and this new 5.5 mile trail [pdf map] will be on the other (East) side of the Trinity River, it will "traverse many of the hills adjacent to Interstate 30 and provide the mountain bike community of north Texas some amazing views of downtown Fort Worth".
The FWMBA "is calling out to the mountain bike community to join us to help make this new vision of Gateway Park a reality."
