My email to ES wasn't really answered, to be honest. In my email, I addressed my concern about not really having anyone maintain the trails in the park. I made no mention whatsoever about CCC in my email, as I was hoping they would in their reply. I just said that is was a shame that there was no one who maintained those trails. Which there really isn't, just some club who claims they do in an attempt to bolster their image. Other things I addressed in my email were those water bottles on the Probert trail and the perverts who I frequently run into.
1-1/2 to 2 months ago, I ran into another person riding the trails in ES (his name has slipped my mind). I believe he mentioned he was with the CCC. I noted the overgrowth on the trails back then and his response was, essentially, that it would clear away on its own. Before that, I made a comment on the CCC's facebook page about the shape of the trails at the beginning of the season. Their response was something about one of their members going back there and taking care of the trails. That puzzled me because, at the time, I was under the impression that the CCC was a group and not a single person. I know, counting on the CCC to maintain those trails is a joke, but if they are going to plaster their club's name throughout the park, at least have the nads to own up to their responsibility and not shuck it onto one single person.
I love riding those trails and do not mind one bit putting in effort to keep them in decent shape. But as I mentioned, I cannot do it alone. My right arm has been numb since I started clearing the school trail and last Friday my head became acquainted with a downed tree that I didn't see because of the overgrowth. That, in turn, gave me a nice dose of whiplash and ruined my helmet.
I am not sure what ES plans to do with the trails, but I am pretty sure that if/when it is complete the CCC will still be "in charge". As long as they are, these trails will continue to be neglected by them and what we see now we will most likely see no matter what is done in there.
