Cambria Somerset Authority (CSA) has approved a request to support efforts to acquire grant funding to continue the second phase of mountain bike trail development at Quemahoning Lake in Somerset County.
CSA will seek Southern Alleghenies Regional Greenway funds to help the Stonycreek-Quemehoning Initiative and project partners build additional mountain bike trails throughout the property.
Over the past eight months, efforts have been underway to build the first seven miles of trails on the reservoir property, said CSA Chairman Jim Greco. The goal is to create a continuous loop around the lake.
The initial phase of trails are expected to open to the public this spring, and a groundbreaking for the second phase will be held this summer.
