Jeff has blogged before about the concept of Flow Country Trails and what this new style of trail building could mean for the future of mountain biking. He has also highlighted flow trails around the world and blogged in-depth about two different flow trails: Sandy Ridge in Oregon and Coldwater Mountain in Alabama.

But what kind of work does it take to create a flow-style mountain bike trail? How much more labor intensive is it than building a regular trail?

Well, to find the answer to that question you should really read my Access Action article titled “How To Build a National Mountain Bike Destination from Scratch” in Dirt Rag issue #165. But you can also watch this awesome five-minute video from the Czech Republic about the process that a group of builders there is going through in order to construct their “Superflow Trail,” officially opening in the spring of 2013:


Thanks to Pavel Hornik for sharing this video with us!

    That’s one nice looking trail!

    The amount of planning must have been pretty intense.

    Well, I don’t know how much “process” was described in the video since it was mostly fluff, but I do love what they are trying to do. I would love to do something like that around here but at this point we are consumed with getting enough basic multi-use trails to keep the population satisfied. Maybe once the basic infrastructure is built out we can start doing more user specific trails.
