The Buena Vista Singletrack Coalition released the new 2019 trails naming results.
“The response to a call for suggested trail names for the two new trails still under construction was amazing,” BVSC announced in a press release.
There were 54 trail name submissions, all displaying creativity and great background information for each. 20 people showed up Aug. 21 to review and give input on the 54 submissions.
“Their thoughtful input helped the BVSC board of directors make the final determination for each new trail. The rest of the trail name submissions are being saved for future new trails.”
The first name is Unchained for the new trail connecting Django to Bacon Bits because it connects to Django.
It is derived from the Quentin Tarantino Western movie “Django Unchained,” which is consistent with the western movie theme.
Also, since this new trail will be under seasonal wildlife closure, it will be “unchained” when it is open from April 16_Nov. 30.
This trail is scheduled to be completed by late October.
Sausage Link will connect the Midland TH on 304 to the end of Bacon Bits because it’s a breakfast meat like bacon, it links Midland to Bacon Bits, and it has a ring to it.
This trail is scheduled for completion by late September.
