Preparation of the Eagle Area 2014 Trails Plan has been a cooperative effort between the Town of Eagle’s Open Space staff and the International Mountain Bike Association’s (IMBA) Trail Solutions division. IMBA Trail Solutions was hired as a consultant due to their extensive experience with trail construction, trail maintenance, and cost calculations.
Additionally, Chris Kehmeier, the IMBA Project Manager for this Plan, has ridden and hiked all the trails in and around Eagle and has extensive local knowledge as a former resident. IMBA is a mountain biking focused organization. However, a well planned, well built, and well maintained trail is generally just as appealing to hikers, trail runners, and even equestrians as it is to mountain bikers. Thus, IMBA tries to design trails that are multi-use in nature.
