CROCT’s Sechler Skills Park continued to evolve in 2017

With help from volunteer trail workers, support from the staff at the City of Northfield’s Streets & Parks Department, and power from our lovable Ford tractor (still on loan from CROCT member Bill Nelson,) our Sechler Skills Park grew quite a bit last year. It now has its own page here on the CROCT website, listed under the Trails dropdown menu. Scenes from the 2017 season:

The list of features (photo album below) will grow again in 2018 but currently includes:

  • 3 berms (1 large wood berm, 2 dirt berms)
  • 7 tabletop jumps (6 beginner-level, 1 intermediate-level)
  • 2 wood drops (1 beginner-level, 1 intermediate-level)
  • 2 large log piles
  • 1 line of 8 small rollers
  • 1 log skinny/logover obstacle, configured for several levels of difficulty
  • 2 railroad ties configured for uphill steps
