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.
