New Kiosk at the New Swift Creek Trail System- Pocahontas State Park

Today helped out with an Eagle Scout project led by Alex that involved final construction and installation of a kiosk at the new Swift Creek Trail System.


The Swift Creek Trail System is part of the Richmond Regional Ride Center. The kiosk is located at what they call the hub, which all the trails of the Swift Creek Trail System meet-up. The park is having a map made that will show the trail system on it.

I really enjoyed working on this project. I am not sure if it was the build itself or being able to see the riders enjoying the trail system and being thankful for the work being done.


This group came up from Williamsburg to ride this morning


I was really cool to see the little 6,7 &8 year olds eating up on the Blue Berry and Gateway trails.

Believe it or not, these two had been riding the single track!

On another note the trail system is getting riders that are new to the sport and might be under prepared. Like having water when its 85 degrees! If you see someone like this help them out when they tell you "I am okay". You know what it looks like when someone is in double.
