Clearing the trails

Today's work party cleared more trees from the new trail system. It's always impressive what a few volunteers can do in a few hourse (especially with a chain saw). Thanks to all the folks who came out and took on this mess:

One of the more impressive tangles involved several trees that completely buried a switchback.

Deep into the cutting of timber and tossing of debris.

Almost there.

Ready to ride.

"Fifteen minutes ago," Mike said, "We didn't know where this trail was."

It's a mess out there

With the freeze/thaw that’s going on this time of year, the surface of the new trail has become incredibly muddy and is not holding up well to traffic. Please refrain from using it until the ground stays frozen throughout the day. Once winter sets in the trail will be awesome for skiing, snow shoeing, running and snow biking.
