Bike Park Info
The Town of Carbondale has recently completed the two-acre North Face Bike Park, adding another recreational amenity to our quiver and enhancing our town’s love affair with anything with two wheels. The impetus to create this no-cost amenity was spearheaded by volunteer citizens who serve on the Town’s Bike, Pedestrian, and Trails Commission. They embarked on a two-year fundraising campaign and were successful at raising the $95,000 that a park of this caliber costs.
The Town of Carbondale received $45,000 in funding from a Garfield County Federal Mineral Lease District grant, $10,000 in Town Funding, $10,000 from Alpine Bank, and $5,000 in community donations. These donations have brought to fruition a quality bike park designed for all ages, skills, and abilities.
The company that was hired to build the park, DirtSculpt, lived up to their name, and transformed the existing earth into an amazing biking experience. DirtSculpt utilized the entire property to proved riders with a mountain bike skills course with challenging uphill switchbacks, and a “flow line” descent with a wall ride and rollers built into the hill side. Other features include two pump tracks that have multiple lines that beckon to be explored. Then to the south of the custom built shade structure one encounters a well designed progression of jump lines, satisfying beginner riders to world class dirt jumpers. The park is surrounded by a perimeter trail that can be used as a part of a loop for local cyclocross races. Words can’t do it justice, just go ride it!
Now that we have a world class bike park, we need to take care of it. Please educate yourself on the park rules and abide by them. Take action and sign up to be a part of a volunteer group that will help with the ongoing maintenance of the park. To get involved contact the Town of Carbondale Recreation Director, Jeff Jackel at 970.510.1214 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
