TRAILS ARE OPEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rain held off. Trails are open. If you go, please ride through the mud puddles, not around. It’s easier to fix 2′ wide trail versus 4′ wide. Construction on Haven Gelespie Road near Lewisburg Trail crossing. There are some trees down since our last clearing session. Pack you a saw and some gravel for the mud holes. Pile at the incinerator. Big rock first, small over. Thank you

For Immediate Release:

 

The City of Covington, Devou Park Advisory Committee, and The Greater Cincinnati Off-Road Alliance are proud to present the opening of the Trails of Sleepy Hollow, a new addition to the Devou Park Backcountry Trail system. The Devou Backcountry Trails are built for self-propelled activities offering Hiking, Trail Running, Mountain Boarding, and Off-Road Cycling. Over four years of hard work and collaboration, the Trail Expansion Project has added 10 miles of new trails!

The newly finished Sleepy Hollow section completes part of Phase III of the Devou Park Trail Expansion Project build plans. This trail is located on the east side of Sleepy Hollow Road on the edge of Devou Park in Covington. This area is approximately 80 acres. (See map) Prior to the Devou Park Golf Course expanding from 9 holes to 18 holes, Montague Road traversed through the area.

The Trails of Sleepy Hollow include, The Goat Path, which offers old school goodness, as you will find roots, rocks, and some log overs. This trail has been around for years in some form or fashion and this year it was officially adopted into the Devou Park Trail Expansion Project. The new Sleepy Hollow Trail, which offers new age goodness and was built ‘bike-optimized’ using the most up to date, latest, and greatest building techniques, which is fairly amazing. The Old Montague Road Trail, which is a road to trail conversion with tons of Honeysuckle remediation. The Benny Vastine Nature Trail, which was an established nature trail prior to the Expansion Project. And lastly, our coveted, The Full Monty Trail completed in 2012.

All trails listed above are now officially open. There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony during the annual Backcountry Bonanza in mid-October. To see the entire Devou Park Backcountry Trails Expansion Project, visit devouparktrails.comfor more info.
