General Trail Information / Is there a state wide pass...
« on: May 29, 2018, 04:52:56 PM »
Iíve been to Brown co. And New Harmony parks a few times this season. I asked the other day at NH about the season pass. $50. Not sure if that would get me into other state parks or am I better off paying $7 at the gate every go?

It's not really fair to use BCSP as an example here. The 2 parks are nothing alike. And like I said before, the trail building is done very well. We're not looking for 10' ladder drops in the middle of the beginner loop or anything too "hard core". Just the ability to put in some exciting lines and more challenging areas. If the majority of the park is going to be built for beginners and, "due to the lack of rocks at Harmonie, Harmonie is not likely to be the Park with the most hardcore trails.  So don't expect Harmonie to ever be the meca for the Hard Core rider" maybe WE can leave it in someone elses hand and not waste our time. Thanks for clearing it up Paul.

I understand where you are coming from.  I know a few people who don't ride Harmonie because they say the trails are just too easy.  The section we are currently working is definetely getting more advanced.  We are entering into some of the steepest and hilliest terrain yet.  I am trying to find spots to build different features to make the trail more fun for advanced riders.  I'm working on a nice log ride with a drop off right now.  I'm like you, I am more willing to work on a trail that fits my taste of riding.  Im not sure what the plans are for the next trail but I would love to build an expert or advanced trail next.  But I think it is best to work on finishing the current intermediate trail.  If we had more volunteers it may be worth splitting up and starting on another trail but right now we only have a handful of people consistently working on the trail.  We haven't set any work days in stone yet but we were talking about the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month.  Hopefully we can get some good turnouts now that the weather is starting to cool down.



Yes, I hope you guys understand that this is nothing against the trail builders. The trails are done right and they are fun to an extent. But I just wonder what the park is thinking? I know that when I go out of town to camp that I make sure the park has something fun to ride. It is the deciding factor for a mtb'r. They're not drawling interest of your every day camper here. We want to up the mtb'r traffic (at least I thought?)

I did a rain dance for you today Zach.... What kind of turn out on volunteers do you think we would yield if maybe we built some more advanced trails next? Just seems like it may drawl more interest from the avid trail rider/builder if we able to build something for ourselves. There is almost 10 miles of recreational trail and nothing that makes me want to come back week to week. People don't travel from all over to BCSP because they have awesome intermediate trails.

Just want to say sorry, just venting some frustration. Harmony may want to consider who they are trying to draw into the park with the trails being built.

Hey Billy, So far there is a 4 mile loop and a 1 1/2 mile out/ back. I was out there last weekend and it was primo, and the camping is great. I ride the loop clockwise, it seems to be more fun that way. We also have Scales lake in the area. That's another 4 mile loop in Booneville IN. Both are a lot of fun. New Harmony trails are built so well your face will wear out from smiling before your legs burn out. Pretty easy to put in 2,3 or more laps in.
