Wow the conditions are nice out there. The underpass is flooding/freezing though.

Watch for downed trees! I nearly ran in to one in Keubler, and after cutting through it, I cut through a tree in Sunset. I only covered Sunset, Keubler, Barton, and the Whitmore Lake -> Pontiac connector. If you ride past there, be on the lookout for downed trees!

Also, there's still a downed tree in sunset that was too big for my saw. The tree is pretty much in the middle of the park, on the quickest/shortest trail to the top of the stairs.

Let's see...

2 trees down in Sunset, one on the main path and one of the side path leading to the staircase. Multiple trees down in a cluster in bluffs, on the last climb before the long path that exits to a parking lot. I can post maps if it helps. All trees require a chainsaw.

Might be the freeze/thaw we are seeing, with daytime highs above freezing.

yup, we're well into the fall mud season now, try to walk around when it is bad or dont ride.

Also, if you've spent ANY time at all in 2014 working on the local loop, face slappers, moving logs off the trail, trimming, ANY work at all!!...please post here or PM me. I want to let the city of A2 know how many hours we put in this year. showing them that will go a LONG way in us getting our way with a lot of stuff.
If you moved a few logs off the trail here and there and pulled some face slappers, THAT COUNTS! the more the better!

thanks!

The Steeper the better...
If they call it Tourist Season, why can't we shoot them??
