Just rode 4 laps today and the trail is still holding up pretty good. I will get that sand pit the next time I am off shift. The sand removed early was not replace with the last three rain storms. And someone has painted some arrows on the ground for help route biker/hiker/crosscountry runners in the right way. Hope to see you on the trail!

I got what I believe to be the last sand pit. I also brushed a couple other parts of the trail. If you find something, post it so it can be taken care of.... Thanks and enjoy the ride.

Rode it yesterday. No issues at all. Nice work. Could use better signage last 1/2 mile. Just a couple of yellow arrows would be helpful.

Noted, there should be some better trail markings, The trail coordinator is working on it and I am always looking for some freebies for the trail. Glad you liked it. Hopefully this fall we can keep the leaves off the trail so others can see the trail. That and the trail markings seem to be the biggest gripes. However maybe a few jumps or obstacles would give the trail technical options for advanced riders. but that is up to the NMMBA. I am just throwing out some ideas...

Removed a large rotten tree from trail and walk about 3 miles clearing spoke killers. I catch the other half another day.

Tree laying across trail on the last section was removed, keep posting trail conditions on here so they can be taken care of.

Going to try to ride Aspen on the 27th or 28th. Sometime between 10:00 and 12:00. Any takers?

Got in a couple of laps yesterday, first time since last summer. The trail is in excellent condition.

A few more laps today, a bit sandy out there. Assuming that tonight's rain will pack it down a bit.
