Mountain bike trail to double in length

Walhalla’s Stumphouse Mountain Bike Park is primed to double in size, from ten to 20 miles in length, as the result of a contract that city council green-lighted last night.  Brandon Burton, the city administrator, was directed to work out the details with trail development company.  Stumphouse bike trail promoter Darlene Greene predicts the expansion will make Walhalla a destination place for mountain biking.  Greene is also hopeful that the Stumphouse Mountain Tunnel Park will become the only such park on the East Coast to be designed an “Epic Ride Center.”  She’s also hopeful that Walhalla will install bike racks in the downtown business district, and suggested the front of the police station as the first bike rack location.
