LYNDON — Three years ago Caleb Gale joined the Lyndon Outing Club’s Board of Directors with a mission in mind. Bring mountain biking to the heart of town. That vision will be realized this summer with the opening of a downhill mountain bike trail and skills park. Cut in between the Bunny Hop and Suicide ski runs, the mountain bike trail will follow a winding .8-mile path along the southern side of the hill. It will drop 375 vertical feet and end at a skills park, which will include a dirt track and features, where riders can hone their skills The trail will be rated intermediate but will offer different lines so that more experienced riders can tackle bigger challenges. There will be no lift service and cyclists will have to ride or walk to the summit. Admission will be free. Work is being done by RLA Trails of Littleton and should be completed within four to six weeks. An opening date is to be determined.
