Thanks for all of the great work keeping the trails in riding shape!

Anyone know what's up with the lean-to somewhere between Y11 & Y12? Kind of spooked me as I rode past.

We saw that this past weekend. We think it's just some folks or kids having some fun in that section. We've seen similar structures in the past and even saw some folks showing younger kids how to make stuff like near the wooden platforms in the after Y3. We should keep our eyes in it and make sure nobody is camping out there.

Trail mowed again this weekend, this time in the low setting. There are some face slappers in the central field section but otherwise the trails in great shape.

New trail markings that shouldn't damage the trees as the old markers. The number indicates the biking direction. Image Image

Small tree down near R5. It's easy to pass under and not blocking.

Dead branch down at Y7. This is at the cut-thru that goes to the park trail just short of the dead tree. Limbs can be crossed with care until further action is taken.

Rode thru this afternoon. It looks like there was some additional trail work by UKHiker and golfbum. Thanks! The trails in great shape but not much color starting in the leaves yet.

Mowed the trail today for what should be the last time this year. The trail is in good riding shape. Crossed paths with a bunch of new users today: one new rider and a handful of hikers. Its great to see the trail getting used more and more.

Not much change in leaf color so far. There are a few tree with underlying Virginia creeper which is turning red. Some of the maples are starting to slightly change their color.

After mowing today the winds brought down a cottonwood right by red three. I found it when i was riding the bike after mowing and already cleared it. Hopefully the storms tonight don't bring more down.
