Joey Klein, a senior trail designer for IMBA, has worked closely with Gary Pritchard-Peterson, manager of the King Range NCA, on the Paradise Royale trail. Pritchard-Peterson came up with the original idea of utilizing two defunct logging roads and potential sections of single-track to create a 14-mile loop, connecting two ominous ridges that overlook the spectacular Lost Coast. “IMBA and Joey changed the way we think about trails,” said Pritchard-Peterson during a grand opening, held last fall. The $600,000 funding will be used to expand the orignal 14-mile loop into a more extensive MTB trail system. More info at imba.com.
