    2012 updates for the Rocky Knob Bike Park

    Hey everyone, we've got some awesome news from the Rocky Knob Bike Park! Phase III is 3/4 of the way finished already, which includes a 3200 linear foot long jump/pump trail, a "freeride" zone and another skills area utilizing several split locust logs felled on site. The jump trail has tons of berms, tabletops (with optional lips), a small rock drop, massive rollers, and even a few rock garden sections thrown in for good measure. It is designed for riders of all skill levels to be able to enjoy, with several optional features on the way down to spice things up if you want. Expect Phase III to be complete by the end of next week! We aren't playing around, we have 11 trail builders and 6 machines running full time to get this done!

    Phase II, which takes the trails up 900' over the parking lot is still under construction, and should be done soon. That will add an additional ~5 miles to the trail system.


    On April 28 we will be having a big festival at Rocky Knob to celebrate the park and the opening of Phase III with Demo bikes, skills clinics, and a pig roast. Keep an eye out on www.rockyknob.wordpress.com for further details or on the Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/RockyKnobPark

    Hell yeah, been wanting to ride there for a while now. How many miles of trail are there now ? Just wondering if it would be too much to hit the Knob after riding OVT. I think they're only 30 min., or so, from each other.

    It's about to be well worth the drive to just ride there. So much sickness being built at the knob right now.

    Hey guys,

    For my senior capstone project, I am working on designing and planning a solar thermal hot water system for the bathroom that will be built at rocky knob within the coming year. The ultimate plan is to submit a proposal for funding the system to the Watauga County TDA. I have written a short survey as part of the project, in an attempt to help prove to the TDA that the community is behind renewable energy at Rocky Knob. The more responses I get, the better. Even if you aren't very familiar with the park, it would be great if you could take 5 minutes to answer 8 simple multiple choice questions.

    Thanks a bunch.

    Great news Moto. Can't wait to be back in the states to check it out!

    Craig, I'd encourage a podium style "hot seat" theme.

    Stop by the house so the missus can whip us up another batch of that famous bowel shattering wheat/ eggplant/turkey spaghetti.

    Craig, good on you for trying this project. Heck, if Bent Creek would just install a solar fan in their toilets, I'd be eternally grateful.
    Make it IDIOT PROOF....and someone will make a better idiot!
