About Us

Amelia Trail Builders Club Inc.

Amelia Trail Builders Club Inc. (ATBC) is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization.  We raise funds for the continual repair and improvements at Amelia Earhart Mountain Bike Trails.  We are comprised of mountain bikers with a shared passion of the sport and our trail system.

Over a span of 30+ years, our team of motivated volunteers have logged over 30,000 hours of planning, building, maintenance and repair time at Amelia Earhart Mountain Bike Trails.

The trail work at Amelia Trails is performed by volunteer mountain bikers registered with Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department.  All work performed at Amelia Earhart Park is approved and supervised by Miami-Dade County Personnel.

The money raised by Amelia Trail Builders is used to purchase building materials, maintenance equipment and consumables such as fuel, cutting blades, trimmer line and tools.
