We’re working closely with our partners on some exciting new projects.
- Trail Maintenance — MBOSC staff and volunteers perform ongoing work on our local trail networks, including Pogonip, Delaveaga, Wilder Ranch, and Soquel Demonstration State Forest.
- City of Santa Cruz Parks Master Plan 2030 — MBOSC has been working closely with the City of Santa Cruz to incorporate new mountain bike opportunities into city parks and open spaces. New trails are proposed at Pogonip and Delaveaga. Find more info here.
- The West Engelsmans Reroute at Wilder Ranch will replace badly eroded fire road with a new sustainable singletrack. This will connect the existing singletrack with the coastal area, creating more enjoyable and beginner-friendly access.
- The Cotoni-Coast Dairies National Monument is approximately 7,000 acres and consists of six distinct watersheds, more than seven miles of coastal resources (including seven beaches) hundreds of acres of agricultural lands, 700 acres of redwood forest, and other unique natural and cultural resources. This newly designated National Monument, operated by the Bureau of Land Manangement (BLM), is not yet open to the public, but MBOSC is engaged and will be a contributor to the planning process.
- San Vicente Redwoods is a property located above Coast Dairies and north of Wilder Ranch State Park which will be opened to the public in the coming years. The property is owned by Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST) and Sempervirens and operated by the Land Trust of Santa Cruz County. MBOSC took a leading role on the design of a 30+ mile trail network there and plans to be highly involved in trail construction on the property.
- Farm Community Park — We are working with Santa Cruz County to bring a new dirt jump facility to the Farm Community Park in Soquel.
- Watsonville Pump Track — we are working with the City of Watsonville to bring an asphalt pump track to Ramsay Park in the heart of Watsonville.
