Muscle Powered, a nonprofit organization dedicated to making a walkable and bikeable Carson City, is exploring the idea of forming a trails partnership with the Parks and Recreation department.
After much discussion between the Muscle Powered board members, they held a meeting with Carson City Parks and Recreation and Mark Kimbrough from the Tahoe Rim Trail Association.
They explored the possibilities of Muscle Powered branching out to become a trails organization.
The plan would be to start off simple " adopt an existing trail and maintain it. The sites are currently set on portions of the Ash Canyon trails that are on city land.
The idea was sparked when members of Muscle Powered attended the Carson Valley Trails Association annual meeting earlier this year.
The trails association shared a presentation to a standing-room-only crowd showcasing the trail network they built in the Jobs Peak area.
Muscle Powered board members got together to hike the Ash Canyon trail network on Saturday. A few friends came along too, including Kerstin Wolle, president of the Carson Valley Trails Association.
