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.

4th Annual Devou Park Trail Bonanza

You’ve Gotta Be There – Don’t Miss This or You’re Gonna Cry All the Way to Christmas
 4th Annual Devou Park Trail Bonanza 
Mark Your Calendar NowOctober 12, 2013 - All Day, All Ages, All Outstanding

Trail Running, MTB XC Racing, DH, and a Super-D Lite Enduro!  Don’t worry if you don’t know what all those things mean yet…stay tuned and you will!  And if that’s not enough, there will be a shuttle taking you and your bike from Sleepy Hollow up to the Full Monty Trail (last year’s new section) so you can ride Mother Nature’s first roller coaster in between events without having to do the nasty climb to the top.
If you haven’t been to the Devou Park Trails in the last four months, there are 4+ miles of new trail that flow and bend and fly.
Great people, a good cause, food, music (maybe), and so much fun you have to wonder how it’s legal?
Covington/NKY is the #1 spot for outdoor fun in the Tri-State, and Devou is the diamond at the top – see you there
