To end any speculation as to the status of "the hill" our reroute that we did a few weeks ago came from the continued issue of the erosion on the hill. With that in mind we will be closing off the old hill in the beginning of May. I know some might not like the decision, but the continuing erosion coupled with the widening of the trail prior to the hill and up the hill (where people have tried to avoid the really bad section) have made the decision for us. We want to have great trails and areas that have the problems we have to deal with. In my 3 years here I have noticed a gradual problem that continued to have issues. I don't want anyone to have the conclusion that this was an easy decision for the park. With the amount of maintenance on the hill that is needed, and the fact that the old hill is not at the adequate grade (per IMBA). The other trails that were there for the time trial that we had a very hard time keeping people off it seemed to be logical to terminate the eroded hill, and find a way to incorporate the trails that were not supposed to be used, so that's what we did. On another note please send the message to some of those that don't hit the forum to please park in the 8 mile lot, with the construction projects going on in the park we had to eliminate some parking at both locations and that means our max capacity for the beck lot is now 40 cars, much less that we have had. Hope to see some of you out on the trail, one of my rigs will be living at the park for the summer/fall.
