Big Day June 13th

  • Help is needed for a record work day when we repair and rebuild trail L better than ever including a long, long downhill that used to be way too steep.  Come on out on the morning of June 13th about 9AM or 10AM.  It doesn't matter because we'll be there into the afternoon if we feel like it.  From Loop Road you'll be able to see the big hill where most of the work will be done.  Bring trail digging tools, but we've got extras.

  • I finished cleaning up trail X and M around the Hollow to the Underover today.  It's better than ever.  
  • Cougar tracks were seen near 17 east of the Underdown two weeks ago.  Maybe this is the same kitty that Brian saw on 51 in April.
  • Map signs should appear on trails in late June.
  • The end of June will mark the beginning of trail mowing season.  Volunteers are much appreciated.

Ready to Ride

Paul, Riley and Joe came out today to help install boardwalks and clean up after logging.  KK is now in top shape and the Heartbreak Ridge climb on trail N is ready to ride.  Most of the Hollow trail (X and M) if cleaned up with some nice little improvements.
This means that all trails are cleaned up and ready for some great rides except for L and LL which will be tackled in June with a great rebuild of a big downhill.
June 13th will be the last big work day this year.  Meet where the Ice Age Trail crosses the east side of Loop Road by the Homestead.  The effects of logging will make it obvious where the work is.

Work Day Sunday

Trails are getting cleaned off this week and are over half done.  Sunday the 10th we'll be working on cleaning up after the west side log job starting about 9AM.  We'll start on KK and work over the Heartbreak Ride on the Ice Age Trail to the Hollow Trail (M and X) to the trail G downhill off Round Top.  See the yellow line on Joe's funky map.

A Great Day for Trail Building

Steve helped get it going yesterday, and today Benji, Beth, Paul and Riley helped finish some fun upgrades to Oktoberfest.  The trail is so dry that it needs the rain.    Next week we tackle the trail around the hollow and KK where the tread took some beating from logging equipment.  We'll cover a lot of ground because the loggers were fairly gentle, and we might have time for upgrades.
