Olde Rope Mill Park Mountain Bike Trails Construction Begins

SORBA Woodstock has begun construction on the Taylor Randahl
Memorial Trails at Olde Building trail at Olde Rope Mill ParkRope Mill Park in Woodstock, GA. 
These trails were made possible by the City of Woodstock, Georgia, when
their City Council voted last year to provide $150,000 of funding in their 2010
budget to build approximately 10 miles of single track on some ideal terrain on
both sides of the Little River that runs through the park.  SORBA Woodstock also received valuable
support from Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI) in the form of a $10,000 grant
targeted for this project. The first phase of this intermediate trail system
will be a five mile loop on the south side of the river.  The trail is named in memory of Taylor
Randahl, a Cherokee County high school mountain biker who was tragically killed
in a road cycling accident on April 14, 2000.
