Michigan’s Edge Mountain Bike Association (MEMBA)
MEMBA members saw the potential of the Mosquito Creek Trail System - and the organization has facilitated the project design, partnerships, fundraising, and will ensure its completion.
While MEMBA builds and maintains trails in this region, a project this size would take far too long for a volunteer organization to complete. The construction of a permanent trail that is both environmentally sustainable, as well as, desirable to use with a “fun factor” consisting of many interesting twists, turns and features requires much more planning, thought and nuanced building techniques. The estimated cost ranges per linear foot to build the Mosquito Creek Trail are in-line with other trail systems which have been recently constructed in the Midwest. For design, MEMBA secured the services of a professional design-build team, Dirt Artisans and Applied Trails Research.
