I think a good hand saw will work. It appears to have been a living tree so there's more branches / debris than anything.
If you do in fact clear it up, place the debris on the south side of the trail as to block off the ability to cut the corner.

Thanks in advance,

Pete.

Rode today around Noon. Other than a few puddles in the Pines, I couldn't tell it had rained. Well, there were a few new "gulleys" in fall-line sections, but no downed trees.

Not so much a trail report, just a reminder to be alert while riding to and from the park on Sheldon road, especially at night. We almost died coming home from Stony Saturday night after the fireworks. Teens blew past us on Sheldon road at a very high rate of speed. Just as the passed, we heard loud screeching behind us and BAM! They skidded out of control and wrapped the tail end of a BMW around a tree not 100 yards from where we had just ridden. If we had been delayed by 30 seconds we would have been toast.

Just got done riding Stony for the first time. I was lucky enough to get a nice guided tour of the place! It is a very nice course and will definitely be going back soon.

Here is the path I was taken on: http://www.endomondo.com/workouts/15425803

I won't get a chance to ride Stony before the TT on the 24th, and I'm curious how it compares with West Michigan trails: Yankee Springs, Luton, CSGA etc. I tend to ride middle-of-the-pack in Sport class, and I'm trying to get a feel for what gearning I should run on the 26" SS. Any suggestions?

Riding around 5:30 or 6:00. Look for a Black Magnum Road & Track by the Sheldon Rd entrance. I will park at the school if close spots are full. I'm riding a black and white RockHopper Comp 29er, white Adidas jersey.

Rode Stony on Saturday evening. There was some Muddy Buddy stuff out there and those Orange painted rocks have been painted a nice clean white color.. lol. The trail it self i found to be smooth and fast I can only think of that normal sandy patch before the big hill when leaving the Back-Nine that was nasty.. all the rest was like riding pavement in the woods. I imagine that the rain has only inproved the trail today.

Rode tonight with the wifey... got there at 7:20p trail was still fast.. but starting to grind up some sand spots. Two peeps out there had Flats in the Coaster almost side by side and a tour group had stopped in on a curve. The Pine were so nice we did it twice! :D

The first peep with the flat was me. Other dude got jealous cause I picked the best spot in the whole park to flat. You ain't cool unless you flat in that spot. ;-)

Today's log- double loop:

I got slower on the hardtail. :-(

Stoney's two track would make for a pretty sweet night ride if I could find a black light bulb that would fit into my head lamp!
