Heatherwood Bike Park Project

Heatherwood Bike Park Project

Green space in a community is a valuable gift and an opportunity to provide recreation. Due to the topography of Heatherwood Park, it lends itself to a form of recreation we do not have in this area.

Mountain Biking!

We want to develop a mountain biking park that will be able to be used by toddlers to adults.

The bike park would consist of three areas of interest.
• A Balance Bike learning area 3-7 years old, to teach balancing skills
• Skills Area 7-12 years old, to teach greater skills and maneuvering
• Gateway Single Track to introduce mountain biking also of interest to trail runners, all in one environmentally friendly atmosphere.

Ephrata would be the first in the state to have such a park. Here is your chance to make a difference in your community and be a part of putting Ephrata on the map!

Watch this video to see our vision and how you can help!

For each $25 or more gift, we will send you a BIKE EPHRATA sticker.

Our goal is $8500 for materials for the trail build-out, benches, trash cans, Kiosk, and bike rack. If we exceeded our fundraising goals, we would start a “Build Your Own Bike” program to help put less fortunate kids on bikes.
Not only will your tax-deductible contribution help build trails but you would be helping build our community.

Black Forest Brewery’s bar manager, Eric Sears, reached out to Pour Man’s Brewery and St. Boniface to discuss an idea he had to brew a collaboration beer with the three Ephrata Breweries to support Mainspring’s efforts to raise money for the Heatherwood Bike Trail. All three breweries jumped right in and the Ales for Trails beer was brewed on May 30th and will be released June 15th. Make sure you stop by and grab your pint and help support the breweries’ efforts to get Heatherwood Bike Trail up and running!
