Per recent trail reports [http://gorctrails.co...ails/cliff-cave], there is a chainsaw worthy tree down on the Spring Valley trail. While their is a SMALL chance I can get to it Friday, I will try to clear it Saturday if I can get a swamper.
And if it hasn't been cleared yet.
Please post if you are available to assist with clearing limbs, twigs, etc, while I do the cutting. Bonus trail karma points for KerryH - who has updated the Cliff Cave Conditions/alerted us to the downed tree - if that poster could either comment within this post, PM the Cliff Cave Trail Stewards [http://gorctrails.co...ails/cliff-cave] or yours truly with further information about the downed tree.
Just a trunk across the tread?
Lot's of twigs/limbs/etc?
That will allow us to better prepare for the removal, via letting us know how much stuff to bring.
Like, can I throw the chainsaw/safety gear in a B.O.B. trailer, or do I also need to include a leaf rake/McLeod to get rid of the litter that's on the tread?
Please remember that there are NO wrong answers to this request, and I will only brag about your participation if you allow me to. To be a nice neighbor, no cutting will start before 9:00 (9:00 a.m. for you civilians).
I'm all for riding before we start, and exploring the Cliff Side for issues as well. I guess you can post here as well if you want to beat the freeze/thaw, and be on trail early.
