The Bell Built Flow trail is a beginner difficulty level flow trail built by IMBA Trail Solution's Randy Spangler, Mark McClure, Doug Vinson and Andrew Mueller. rvaMORE was the east coast winner of the highly competitive Bell Built technical assistance grant. A high concentration of rollers, roller doubles, berms and tabletops draw riders forward, allowing riders to reach that unique sensation of floating through the landscape. This trail was designed to be part of the first phase of trails in the Swift Creek area. This trail is a handcycle trail and part of 7 miles of handcycle trail.
