A project of this size cannot happen without dedicated volunteers. The West Michigan Mountain Biking Alliance (WMMBA) has stepped up to support and coordinate trail volunteers. The WMMBA will be responsible for routine trail inspections and maintenance. WMMBA is developing a comprehensive volunteer program, matching experienced volunteers with developing volunteers to keep the trail in optimum condition. In addition, the WMMBA volunteers are highly skilled with trail maintenance and will assist Newaygo and Mecosta Counties with routine maintenance and repairs of the trail. The WMMBA is overseeing all volunteer patrols and maintenance on the trail.
