My wife had posted on CCC's facebook page asking when they are planning on doing some maintenance to the trails in Sharp park. Not one reply. No surprise, really. However, when they boast on their website that they are in charge of maintaining them, shouldn't they own up to that?
They also mention that the trails do not become MMBA sponsored trails due to "higher trail traffic" and increasing risk of injury. With the current condition of the trails (overgrowth, headhunters, etc.), doesn't that increase the risk of injury? Seems like it to me. Being blinded by some of the overgrowth, you can have a head on with another biker or hit a hiker. Besides, I don't know of any case where a mountain biker has sued a park because they fell off their bike or something. Most mtn. bikers know the risks involved.
If, and that's a BIG IF, the MMBA did take over maintenance, I could see a minimal increase in bike traffic in the park. Not a whole lot with Custer and Poto being not far away from Jackson.
Seems to me that CCC only wants to pad their credentials with Sharp park on their website. As we all know, I don't see any of them out there doing what they claim on their website.
I'm sorry, but it just sickens me that in order to get things done there you have to get a group of MMBA members together to get it done. Personally, I just want to give up on the park altogether as long as CCC is in charge of it.
I know this debate has been going on for years and nothing will ever change. I just needed to vent a little.
