99% of horse riders respect the bike trails and are embarrassed when a horse does damage to a bike trail. I am equally embarrassed when bikers don't use their heads. Because both user groups have separate trail systems so it is rare that you will see a horse out in the woods, but make sure that you slow way down and greet them when you see a horse on a road. I don't want to hear any more about bikers blowing by little girls on ponies in the parking lot.
On October 8th we'll still be cleaning and berming on Oktoberfest starting at Underdown Lake in the morning whenever you can get there, but on October 9th there will be work to do by the homestead. On that morning you will have the opportunity to extend the Homestead Trail another hundred yards or so to a safer exit, plus we'll be doing erosion prevention between White Lightning and the Homestead.
