Funding and advocacy for the Craig Bike Park Project. The project will continue the creation of a non-motorized 10 acre bike park facility benefiting all ages, abilities, and skill level of mountain. The project area is approximately 10 acres and will provide approximately 5 miles of new trails. Currently, the project is approved by OC Parks and is in site environmental and geology review.

The SHARE trail ambassadors, also known as trail bosses, collaborate with park rangers and environmental specialists to identify key trail development and maintenance needs throughout the annual trail work season. The SHARE trail bosses take personal accountability to perform critical trail repairs and maintenance. This program continues to be successful and was a very important program to assure continued sustainability of trails and to enhance public safety for trail users. Trail bosses also serve as key park representatives and managed larger SHARE trail work days for trail development and maintenance.
In 2018, SHARE will be expanding the SHARE boss program in several Orange County parks managed by the California State Parks (CSP) and OC Parks Department (OCP). These parks include: Crystal Cove State Park (CSP), O’Neill Regional Park (OCP), Whiting Ranch Reginal Park (OCP), and San Onofre State Park (CSP).
