Some great reports coming through. Thanks guys!
I would LOVE to help out on the Saturday Trail Day, but have a previous engagement. :x

Ron, keep me in the loop as to any (other) days you may be working on Holdridge.

Found a pair of sunglasses last night on west loop just after the bridge after tech and before lake. I put them on the kiosk by the information pamphlets.

I just found out I have to work until about 12-1pm. I'm assuming you guys will be working for a few hours after that. I'd still like to come by and help as soon as I'm done. Will I be able to contact someone to find out where I can help once I get to the trailhead?

West loop was in great shape today. Grubers was decent, but had some deep mud at the swamp areas. A lot of widow-makers & branch debris & rollers on the trail. i.e. derailleur grabbers! Overall in decent shape.

Trail work was done yesterday 4/23/16 at Holdridge.....including a sign installed on West Loop at the new "Wall Bypass" cut off, the bypass itself was bench cut in some areas and cleaned up, tree moved on Lake Loop downhill section, Turtle Trail cleared of downed trees, North Loop cleared of downed tree(s), and the water pump and pavilion area of parking lot where cleaned up.

Some work was done on East also but I had to leave before that was done, so Ron or someone who was there can detail that work.

Thanks to all who helped.


EDIT 4/24/16 4:13pm......Just Rode West/Tech/Lake/North. All excellent condition. But there is a now tree down across Tech just after the small "Rock Feature" near the horse field.

We cleared a few trees hanging precariously over the trail on the Meadows loop and the last mile or so of the first 7miles to shield road. We also cut back a bunch of briars/branches. Also installed a new 8mile marker post.

I rode the entire East Loop yesterday and its pretty good. A few face slappers still, and some briars reaching into the trail but nothing major. Orchards is feeling a bit claustrophobic but I think that's kind of the nature of the beaast...good thing I'm short 8)

Rode north, west, tech, and lakeshore this afternoon. All are in great shape except for the usual places on north (between .5 and 1 mile markers) which still have some heavy mud and standing water. I took out the tree on tech and other little stuff along the way.

Thanks Jeff for clearing the Tech tree. And yes, it was disappointing to see that section of North so muddy again today :x
