All in all, things are looking pretty good already. Lots of leaf cover left, no doubt that's why the rakes were mentioned for the trail day. It is a bit difficult to pick out the trail sometimes, even if you know it well. Riders new to Burchfield would no doubt have some difficulty staying on track.
I saw that today as well as a large very dangerous looking thrown together teeter totter. It's the same one Steve F and I took down twice in one day last year. I took it down again but it's probably back up as I am typing this.
I got a jump on the leaf blowing today. All of Swamp Thing, Dragon Ball, Remember Me, Bobs, and the ridge trail at the begining by McNamera are all clear and good to go. That just pretty much leaves the other side of the park. There is one tree down across the trail on Swamp Thing. It is to high to ride over and will need to be cut out with a chainsaw. I was surprised at how dry the trail is already in some sections. It was actually quite dusty while I was blowing, did not expect that.
