I just might do that. I'm sure I'm missing some good stuff.

Bloomer is much better now.
I live right by Bloomer and always avoid because the trail system was like a spider web.
I will now ride there much more. Now if I want to do a quick evening ride I don't have to go far.
One down tree in the new trail next to the cricket field.( I tried to clean up the small branches around it)
Not too muddy a few slick spots here and there.
Good work trail crew.

Some work needs to be done on dead fall around marker 2 both sides of it as well. Sat evening ride.

gear tooth you must not have been down by the river. There are some super swampy areas on the lower trails

I went by the river. I road the old xc race loop twice with the exception of the new trails.
I had seen it way worse before.
There was only a couple of bad areas one being by the steep down hill trails west of the main stairs.
Nothing like parts of the two track at stony.

Very nice gentlemen, very nice. I enjoyed dinner served to me from all of the bugs get'n caught between my teeth as I was grininng from ear to ear over all ofthe trail improvments, while I rode through there yesterday afternoon.I loved the new sections. Maybe some directional arrows out there like at Stoney would be groovie. I hope I wasnt go'n the wrong way. Again, good job... you guys should be proud of all that you have done out there!

Hey Dustin and Derek,
Love the additional single track in the pines, took kids out there last night. However, there are two trees down. One is fairly large and most likely will need a chainsaw, if I remember correctly. The other is smaller and can be cleared with a hand saw.

No one was available at the guard shack or I would have let them know.
