January 15, 2013 (San Diego)--On Sunday, January 20 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the San Diego Mountain Biking Association (SDMBA) will be constructing new sustainable shared-use trails on the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge. The trail-head is located at the end of Par Four Dr., off of Steele Canyon Road. 

Planning for this event took over four years. Design, construction and maintenance will all be by volunteers. 

“This may very well be the first time that a mountain biking association will be granted permission to construct sustainable trails on any National Wildlife Refuge,” said Jason L. Showalter, vice president of the San Diego Mountain Biking Association. “The main trail user group in the Par Four area is equestrians and SDMBA and the East County equestrian community members are proud to be working together on this very important project.” 

SDMBA will host a BBQ after this event. All East County residents are invited who want to participate in this historic event.
