It has finally paid off, thanks for all of your hard work Ron. This has to be the longest it has taken holdridge to get ready with the largest amount of man hours. Awesome work, hoping to get out there soon to ride grubers.

Seemed nice out there today. There is a LOT of debris on the trail, particularly on Orchard, but everything was passable. Two downed trees, but both can be ridden around. Nice work out there getting everything trimmed. There's not many face slappers, and I didn't notice anything thorny hitting my arms or legs.

EDIT: Whoops, forgot about the one tree on North... That one is in a bad location.

For sure. Getting one teen to do anything is tough, let alone 16-20.

For the most part the debris is because of the lack of traffic. Orchard was just opened 7-10 days ago. You might have noticed the number of cut trees on Orchard? One could not only build a log house but a log village as well.

Yeah -- that was pretty insane... There were some amazingly large clusters out there. You've all been putting in an incredible amount of work up there to get it back ridable.

There was a tree down right at the 7 mile mark, 5 feet past the sign.
Someone in the parking lot said there was a big one down on the North, I didn't verify.

On the East 7 mile mark, is the key word "was" or is there still a tree down?
Did they say where on the North? I can get out there later this PM.

It was down at 6pm when I went past the 7mile. Had to climb over it.
Assuming the one on the north is between 1 and 2. Scott took the one out at .75 in.
I removed the head bangers at 15 and the big leaner at the second sandy down hill on east.

Should have stayed an extra day where you cut up the tree on the North loop. I cleared another large tree about ten steps further. The tree on the East's 7 mile almost hit the sign. Did not miss the sign by more than 9". Anyway both are gone.

BTW, Great job on Trail Day guys!!!! The East looked GREAT. :D :D

North & Meadows loops were clear.
The first 7 miles of East and Thorn Dog return are clear.
(There are some face-slappers.)

All of east is clear, dry and rolling good. We have a backpack blower if anyone wants to clean the orchard or meadows.
