Hard Money Colorado's New Directional DH Trail
"What a time to be alive. There is no better day than "New Trail Day". Hard Money is Colorado's newest directional, mtb only, dedicated dh trail, located just outside of Black Hawk on Maryland Mountain.The official grand opening is on Memorial Day Weekend, 2021, so come on out and enjoy the festivities.
This project was originally started by the city of Black Hawk a couple of years ago, offering outdoor rec opportunities close to town. COMBA got involved and raised funding to create mtb specific, directional trails. I see this sort of thing as a huge step in the right direction for the MTB community. The next round of fundraising will go to support the next two MTB only, directional trails, making four in total, culminating with a double black, true DH run. Huge thanks to Black Hawk for allowing BMA and COMBA to cater to our user group. The future is bright.
As we all know, these things don't just happen without the huge efforts of many people. Huge thanks to all of the volunteers have put countless hours into this trail system. Love your work. Please consider making a donation of time or money to COMBA or BMA. They are fighting for our user group on the ground and truly making an effort to move the needle. There are plenty of dig days coming up, every little bit helps the community. Be the change you want to see. Get involved! Cheers to Wendy and Gary for hosting Dacre and I. " — Nate Hills
