Trails Utah is working with partners Salt Lake County, West Valley City, Utah High School Cycling League (UHSCL), and community members to enhance trails and add skills features to the Lodestone XC Bike Park in Kearns, UT. This project will focus on improvements to this non-motorized recreational cross-country style bike park that features several miles of trails. We seek to add skill areas, bermed turns, drops, and other trail features suitable for advancing mountain bike skill levels. Trails Utah is working with partners to raise the funds needed for the project. We have a large grant that will cover almost half of the project cost and are seeking matching funds.
Lodestone Regional Park is a 60-acre park located in Kearns Metro Township in West Valley City, UT. The westernmost 12+ acres of the park is a sloped area where the bike park resides. The new development will include skill areas designed to develop the proficiency of young mountain bikers. Providing underserved UHSCL high school mountain bikers an area to train and improve skills is the main purpose of this project, but this park is also open to the public for other users. Certain of these trails will also be accessible for adaptive mountain bikes, further expanding the user base, especially for adaptive riders living on the West Side. This XC-style bike park is intended to serve the needs of at least six middle and high school mountain bike race teams who do not have easy access to open space and trails for the purposes of training. Trails Utah is currently in the interviewing process with trail builders for this exciting new project. We thank the Millerburg Family Giving Fund for being a major donor to this project.
