The Chattahoochee National Forest Needs Your Input on FS Roads

Upstate SORBA Completes New Trail


By Chip Batson

After holding a successful State Championship Downhill Race in 2011, Upstate SORBA elected to donate some of the profit to Paris Mountain State Park to help complete new trail. This donation, combined with funds from the local outfitting store REI, made $8,000 available to hire a professional trail building company to build just over one mile of new trail. Two volunteer work days attracted around 90 volunteers each, with some volunteers traveling from as far away as North Carolina and Georgia.

He was riding his bike home on the evening of September 29, 2005 when he was struck by an automobile.
