(Logan,  Utah — July 11, 2017) — ICON Health & Fitness volunteers teamed up with The Trails Cache to lead the construction of a new public trail at Logan Canyon’s Beaver Mountain. Cache Valley’s newest running, hiking and biking trail will cover four beautiful miles and has been named Bjorr Trail.

Crites, Cache Valley Trails Planner, led the 13 ICON volunteers. The Trails Cache seeks to build strong community support and excitement around a network of non-motorized trails in Cache Valley. It is also designed to be the central gathering point for anyone interested in supporting, promoting, and improving the area’s trails.

"We are very fortunate to have such supportive business partners within our community. We were thrilled to welcome hard working ICON volunteers, and truly appreciate the time and energy they dedicated to providing a beautiful new trail for all to enjoy," Crites said.

Many of ICON’s employees are active outdoor enthusiasts and this project was a natural fit.  Trail building is hard manual labor, the team worked for four hours to create 0.2 miles of trail. They cleared the way using pick axes and McLeod trail building tools to remove vegetation, rocks and dirt leaving behind a pristine new section of trail. Trails Cache relies strictly on volunteers to build the new trail, and interested parties can sign up on The Trails Cache website.

“Giving back to our community is embedded in our values and culture at ICON. It gives employees the opportunity to get to know their colleagues outside the workplace while doing service,” said Allison Flippence, ICON Brand Manager. “Our work today hopefully makes a difference and contributes to the health and happiness of members of our community.”
