Sorry I don't remember. I was not focused on getting back to my dry truck. :/ but it's about 12" in diameter with many branches and wedged in between smaller trees. It's in the middle of a small climb towards the middle of the course.

How quickly does the skills park dry out? Should it be rideable this evening?

The skills park will be fine to ride today.

We cleared the fallen tree in the Roller Coaster today.

Also, we re-routed the washed-out, sandy drop in the Roller Coaster.
Big thanks to Mark and Mike.

Here's a shot of the new trail on the left and the old trail on the right.
This pic was taken from the sandy bottom where the little hump exists. Looking back up the trail.

It needs to get compacted but it should be an improvement.

Enjoy,
Pete.

Church, it's usually by posting. Just take a gander here once in a while.

Rode the new piece of trail 4x yesterday. Packing down nicely and is pretty seemless from the older trail. I didn't realize I was turning on to it until I hit the fresh dirt.

On my morning ride today I found a second and third downed trees in the Rollercoaster. I moved one during the ride and went back later with a saw and got rid of the other one.
There is a fallen maple on the two track between the Pines and the entrance of Snakes. It's on the fast downhill just before the meadow.
All it needs is a couple of limbs cut away using a folding saw.
Hopefully someone will get that done soon.
I will pack away my saw, but I'm not sure when I'll be out there again.

Enjoy,
Pete.

There's a tree down before the rest stop. There was an attempt to turn it into a another log pile. It kind of messes with the flow right there, not sure if it's meant to stay there or not.

Yeah - that caught me by surprise yesterday - not a big fan of that one if it is intentional.

All trees cleared from the singletrack trails as of Sunday @ 1:30pm.

I managed to cut away enough of the fallen Oak on the 2-track between the Pines and the Snakes to allow one sufficient egress in that area today.

We hadn't ridden Stony trails in three months. Had a blast. Did the Pines twice and then rode the Roller Coaster. Really liked the rock garden in the Pines. It's much more solid now and no moving rocks which can really throw you off.
Roller Coaster was much more chewed up since June and noticed a new short reroute. Most of it was fine though.
