Pete and Gigi have been looking after 6 and 5 regularly. I would suggest east or west 2 or 1 from the east end to the Festival site.

rats - I knew that - my apologies.

I will pass that along - I'm sure they'll be fine with that.

worst part of 3 is now from this season's reroute to the serpentine going up to the cougar village trailhead (hoping one more trip should do it) and the trail 3 connector.

 

From cougar village trailhead to poag road has all been trimmed back.

 

What was a leaner on 3 is still leaning but at a more acute angle - now you really can't go under it.

Last week John Mahoney cleared the downed trees on 2 & 6

 

Today I cleared 1 from the #1 trail head to where it meets 3.

I'll start clearing on 3 from poag back to #1

 

The rest of #1 still really needs some love....

cleared 3 from poag road back to #1

 

I think now we still need to hit 1, 7, 8 and perhaps revisit 4

There are still some downed trees on 3 & 4 (sorry for the lack of detail)

John Mahoney cleared the downed trees on trail 3!

(and someone left an obscene message on his car - amazing!)

continued clearing #1, working from south trail head to #3 connector (the trail from the kiosk to #3 already being cleared) - made it through the cross country crossing down from the weather station

- still some low hanging stuff

- really need to get some time in on #8

Worst of trail 8 has been cleared

Trail 7 has also been cleared

I think I'll start back on 1 - but I'll post here

 

Please post any clearing you do - just good to know what's been done so others can go on to another area

 

Thanks!

Thanks Caleb for your work! We went out yesterday and opened up trail 8 just a bit more. Also I cleaned all of trail 7 last Wednesday. Hopefully I am going to try and clean the connecter from the wooden bridge up to the MCT this Wednesday morning if anyone is interested in helping.

we got to ride on Saturday and trails were just great - can't tell you guys how much we appreciate all the work you've done to keep them opened up for the summer.  Looking forward to our work days this fall.
