MTB Atlanta receives $25K REI Community Grant for ITP Trails

We are stoked to announce that we have been awarded an REI Community Grant for work on the new 4 mile Intermediate Trail at Southside Park! MTB Atlanta was nominated by REI employees in the Atlanta market to submit a grant proposal for our work on the ATL Gateway Trails, our concept plan to bring more recreational trail opportunities to ITP Atlanta. While the trails at Southside Park will be designed and built for mountain biking, they will be shared use and open to all outdoor recreation enthusiasts. When completed the up to 8 miles of trails at Southside Park will be the first trail system on City of Atlanta park land purpose built for outdoor recreation and a huge benchmark for soft surfaced trails in a major city in the US.

Construction will begin this Fall and we are pumped to get started. Thank you REI for your commitment to recreational trails in the City of Atlanta!
