Blazing a New Trail at Fisher Farm
I was reviewing my notes and realized that I haven't posted anything about Fisher Farm. Fisher Farm is part of the Town of Davidson, though you probably wouldn't realize it. It consists of four or so miles of single-track trails just east of Davidson and truly in a natural setting. While utilized primarily by mountain bikes, it's also a great place to perform some solid trail running.
I'm going to post a full report on running at Fisher Farm at a later time because I'm in the process of mapping (via my Garmin Forerunner) the various routes.
This morning twenty volunteers got together at Fisher Farm to put in a new section of trail. Under the direction of Mark Sullivan, owner of The Cycle Path, we scratched out a new intermediate section of the main trail just before the finish. With the large number of people we were able to knock it out in less than three hours.
The Tarheel Trailblazers are also intimately involved in maintaining the trails at Fisher Farm. They have recently been awarded a grant by REI to add another section of trails.
