Interesting info Nate.

So you walk the trails you map for the MTB Project?

I have no info for KlyeC or Fourshay, but just would like to say "good on the ppl here that have posted up beta for these guys!"  Nice to see the bike community foster if not embrace the younger crowd who have a passion for riding bikes in the dirt!

The Mods/admin here could have easily slammed these guys questions and told them "don't even think about bringing a shovel to Town Run" but instead invited them to come out and give their input to some trail building sessions. 

These young guys are the ones who might save future trail building projects from everything being wheelchair accessible "flow"

Hmmmm, flat here in Indiana, say it isn't so! How would IMBA trail building methods address that issue?  "That forest won't take a trail, too flat gotta have ur 5% run-off grade."   :o

Gene Hamilton of betterride.org  yes I agree he's pretty opinionated, but did have some pretty sound advice about the wide bars and narrow gaps.  He was saying to try and clear one side/end, and the other will naturally make the gap, well unless the gap is too small! lol

So...I haven't seen horses on the LC trail, but what I was asking is the map in the link I have in my post inaccurate, it looks like the date is somewhere in 2010.  A staked trail inside of the LC trail seems to me the obvious choice for expansion to the bike trails at ft ben.  The link just looks like there is already a horse trail there?

I was searching around on the interweb for a map of the horse trails at fort ben, and correct me if I'm wrong, but is there a horse trail in the center of the LC trail? Kinda looked like an IMBA staked trail system.  http://www.indianatrails.com/content/fort-harrison-state-park-trails

700mm on a 2013 Specialized Carve, not sure what the stock stem is.  Thought about cutting bars down when I first got the bike, but the effort seemed... now I'm completely used to the width and haven't come across anywhere the bars don't split right through. 

I'm looking at a new ride for the spring, and imagine it will come with even wider bars.  Just seems to be be the way the industry is pushing things.  My rims will get smaller and my bars will get wider. lol
