FUNDED!!!! IMBA Dig In Project

Thank you for everyone who donated! We’ve hit our goal! More updates and good things to come!

CAMBC has been approved by IMBA for their Dig-In project funding program. Our proposal for the project was the phase 3 development of the new Heyward Community Forest/Song Mountain Trail system, adjacent to Ragged Mountain. The Dig In project gives is access to matching funds to accelerate this project. The first $2000 will be matched by IMBA through a grant provided by Shimano. Our goal is to raise $7000 through this program.

This project represents the third phase of the Song Mountain Loop trail system in the newly acquired Heyward Community Forest. This new bike-optimized, shared use trail, named Voodoo Child, is an arterial trail that will connect Heyward Community Forest with Ragged Mountain Recreation Area, completing 2.5 miles and expanding day-riding experiences in the Charlottesville area.

The Voodoo Child Trail will be built with features appropriate to an intermediate skill level, including larger berms, small jumps and technical sections.

Charlottesville Area Mountain Bike Club (CAMBC) has received a proposal from AMPPL Trails, LLC (a Professional Trail Builders Association member company), for trail planning, design, and construction. AMPPL has been integral in the design, planning, and construction of the first 2 phases of this project, which have been primarily funded by CAMBC.

This phase of the project combines professionally contracted trail builders with volunteers to further connect our volunteers, and provide a level of ownership of the process, to the trail system. This ensures a long-term volunteer commitment to this new riding area.


Our Goal is $7000. The first $2000 will be matched by IMBA and Shimano.
Deadline is April 1st, 2021
