American Eagle spotted in Rouge Park!

The American Eagle Foundation, one of SCA’s national sponsors initiated a country-wide campaign to “Reclaim the Outdoors”.  On October 3rd, 30 volunteers from the Michigan Mountain Biking Associationthe Hub of Detroit and SCA Detroit engaged in a day of trail work and riding  at the only mountain bike trail in Detroit, a two mile loop along the Rouge River in Northwest Detroit.

The projects included:

Securing an existing bridge platform

Building 2 retaining walls to prevent washout and to widen trail

Reworking tread and create drainage solutions

Defining trail borders and relocate native plantings to block off social trails

Removing felled trees and general clean-up

Thank you to all those that participated and helped make the event a huge success!  SCA Detroit would also like to thank The American Eagle Foundation, The MMBA and the Hub for their generous support!
