Good Response at Meeting on New Shepherd Mountain Bike Park in Ironton

(Ironton) About 40 leaders from Iron and surrounding counties took part in a meeting Tuesday in Ironton to discuss the Shepherd Mountain Bike Park currently being built in the Arcadia Valley.

Chuck Correll owns Fort Davidson Cafe and is a member of the Arcadia Valley Tourism Committee.

He was pleased with this meeting.

Correll says once the mountain bike park is open, it will not just be a boost for the economy of Iron County and the Arcadia Valley but neighboring counties too.

Phase 1 of constructing the park consists of building five different bike trails.

Phase 2 will feature the building of even more trails and amenities.

Officials hope Shepherd Mountain Bike Park in Ironton will open sometime next spring.
