New Singletrack in the Carlton Reserve

They say good things come to those who wait. Maybe they should change it to - Good things come to those who stay focused and determined with a single goal in mind. That's what it took for final approval of the suggested mountain bike specific trails to be added to the T. Mabry Carlton Reserve in Venice, Florida.
SCORR (Sarasota County Off Road Riders) is the group who initiated the plans. They mapped the trail routes and sat through several meetings all while establishing a solid relationship with Sarasota County. After 18 months of fundraising, planning and participation - the waiting is over and the building has begun.
