Proposed Tuthill Park Single Track Recreational Trail
We are currently raising funds to work with a professional contractor, TrailArts, to design and build up to 4 miles of multi-use single track in and adjacent to Tuthill Park in Sioux Falls, with completion slated for fall 2018.
In 2016, FAST was granted access to an underused area of Tuthill Park through a usage agreement established with the Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation Department to establish and maintain a multi-use trail.
The trail surface will be packed dirt with stone hard facing and wood bridges as needed. It will range in width from 24-36” and the grade will follow the natural river bluﬀ topography of the park. Average grades will not exceed 8-10% and the maximum grade will be no greater than 17%. The trail will be designed to allow water to exit the trail often and minimize erosion potential.
After the trail is built, FAST volunteers will be utilized to maintain the single track throughout the season through weekly trail maintenance and cleanup sessions. The sessions are tailored to the need of the week and can include tree and grass trimming, erosion repair, litter pick-up and trail expansion.
