On Thursday, Aug. 1, at 6 p.m. at the park’s Heritage Center, Pocahontas State Park will hold a public meeting to discuss development of mountain bike trails and related facilities. Staff from the Department of Conservation and Recreation will provide an overview of the proposed facilities and gather feedback from meeting attendees. An amendment to the park’s master plan calls for construction of: DSC_2928
  • 32 miles of new mountain bike trails.
  • A day-use trailhead with parking, restrooms, changing rooms and outdoor showers. 
  • A connector between existing trails and the proposed trail system.
  • A hand cyclist training center to facilitate access to the trail systems for those who cannot operate traditional bikes.

 

 

 

Pocahontas State Park will house part of the International Mountain Biking Association Ride Center planned for the Richmond region. The center will be a legacy project of the UCI Road World Championships to be held in Richmond in 2015. There are 11 other IMBA Ride Centers around the world.For more information, contact Bill Conkle, DCR park planner, at bill.conkle@dcr.virginia.gov or 804-786-5492.

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
