The Berks Trail Works organization offers solutions to land managers to assist in maintaining and enhancing trails used by outdoor enthusiasts.
Problems with erosion and high traffic are met with sustainable solutions that require less maintenance. The overall trail experience for the user is enhanced while giving the land managers and owners piece of mind.
By doing necessary maintenance and improvements, the trails in Berks County will benefit all trail users.
Our members have been active in the cycling community for decades and have formed a collective knowledge of what works for the area and how to sculpt the terrain.
Berks Trail Works intends to form alliances with various groups in the community to further benefit the trail users by collaborating on potential projects and listening to what the community as a whole wants.
We want all user groups of the community to benefit from the effort and labor put into the trail systems.
The primary focus will be on an ever growing segment of trails known as enduro style trails. These are trails that run primarily downhill and include various sections that will challenge new and skilled riders.
This type of trail is becoming more of a demand by the mountain bike community due to the nature of the trail and the ability to progress rider’s skill levels to take on more challenging terrain. Berks County has some of the most unique trails in Pennsylvania and has been embraced by riders all over the east coast.
We intend to make these trails more sustainable to the growing population of riders coming to the area that are in search of challenging terrain and thrills only possible in Berks County.
Our goal is to enhance and maintain trails for all user groups and all skill levels.
See how you stack up to the local competition or just come out to have a good time. These events are strictly for fun and to have a good time. Races, group rides and dig days are all part of the fun.
Having advanced trails gives new riders something to look forward to and seasoned riders something to get better at. We have the knowledge and skills to build safe, but challenging, features that can be fun for beginners through experts.
