Within the past year, Irondequoit Bay Park West has seen a number of improvements including the split-rail fencing at on the Blue trail, new maps in the kiosks, extensive work on the Red and Blue trails, and more. GROC Trail Crew’s newest endeavor is an extension of the Orange trail.
The Orange extension project will greatly enhance the current trail network by adding length to Orange and offer some very fun new singletrack. Also, of equal importance, it will allow us to take an unsustainable section offline. While no one wants to see trail go away, closures are sometimes important to protect users (safety) and the landscape (prevent erosion). When the time comes, and we close the section of trail that isn’t working well, please respect the trail closure and the need to heal the landscape of our beloved park.
In related news, I (Adam Reitz) have stepped up to be the new captain for Irondequoit Bay Park West. Most of you know me for the work I’ve done on the Red trail – and more recently leading crews to improve Blue – others know me from my dedication to educating young riders and future trail stewards as Singletrack Academy. I love building trail as much as I do riding it and am particularly passionate about IBPW. I was part of the group that got it legalized,
helped with the initial design and construction efforts, and am dedicated to the future vision of making it a first-class riding destination. I enjoy sharing my passion and knowledge of digging, and I look forward to working with everyone willing to step up to make great things happen!
Work on the Orange extension project has already begun and will take place on Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings (until completed). Pitch in and join me, and the GROC Trail Crew, in our effort to enhance the IBPW trail network!
