In 2020, Henry Campbell, then a senior at Marshall High School, began with an idea for creating Mountain Bike Trails in the Superior Municipal Forest as part of his senior project. Planning led to implementation and work on the first loop began in the summer of 2020 and was completed in late summer of 2021. Campbell, along with many volunteers, spent close to 200 hours clearing the corridor by hand, digging the riding surface and constructing bridges. They have plans to build more of these trail segments and have already begun clearing the corridor for segment two. This first trail segment is .24 miles. Currently, the trail is going through the City's naming process with a proposed name of "Senior Slide" and the public is welcome to give feedback on this name by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
