Would any of you know why PLRA has two Mile 5 markers?

The older looking one, which I think is the wrong one (it seems too far along and doesn't match the DNR map) one seemed to have the initials BH III on it.

That have rerouted the trail several times in the last 10 to 12 years. Could be an old marker. There used to be a few more wall like climbs in the trail years ago.

Trail in great shape. Pretty fast. Need to wear down a few leafy spots.
On large low-ish tree on the front side before the horse trail crossing that could be removed. Big job though.

That big fallen tree forms perfect arc. Kinda cool. Can it maybe be reinforced and left at that?
Either push yourself, or go back to island lake. (c) iamkickstand

Nature does a superb job of propping up the end of a downed tree on it's own stump at just the right height for people to ride under, yet the first thing some of you want to do is remove an interesting trail feature like that. Sheesh! What are MTBers coming to these days? :wink:

Time trial Sunday is going to be a good one... Looking forward to starting my race season finally.

There's no Time Trial happening on Sunday at PLRA.

Sunday's TW race is XC, not a time trial.

I dont know why but I have been thinking it was a time trial until now... Either way, looking forward to it!

Only Sunday? What time? I was hoping to ride Sunday but don't want to get caught in the race crowd. Thanks.
