Trail Maintenance Opportunities
Last month Thomas asked if he could help out with trail maintenance but wasn't sure where his help was needed. Also, the regular monthly schedule wasn't a great fit. I suggested we go for a ride. We looked at several areas that needed maintenance, he picked one, and on Monday evening he went to work. Thank you Thomas for your recent work on Green Ribbon.
More maintenance opportunities exist. If you want some ideas, or have some ideas, please contact me. If some riding buddies want to get together an knock off a maintenance project, please contact me.

Trail Maintenance Report June 18th
A dozen people made it out in the Father's Day drizzle this year to give back to the trails. They put some finishing touches on the North Ridge reroute. After that, the old trail was reclaimed. Hopefully it will stay wet enough to start regenerating before the fall. The new trail rides really well. Several of us also started work on a new log ride to replace the old one on North Ridge that had rotted out. The new one will be comparable - low to the ground with minimal consequences.
Meanwhile on Dave's Line, the new re-route was buffed out a little more.
Red Barn Sandwiches and soup were enjoyed by all after the mornings' work. Thanks to all those that came out.
Here are a few pics of Dave's Line. I forgot to take any of North Ridge (duh), but will update the link later this week with more photos.
Your Trail Crew is out every month. if you would like to give back to the trails, drop me a note: Trails@simbs.com for a no hassles monthly reminder.
