Cleared the down tree in the North section along the river, a down tree in section 3, and a down tree in Schoolhouse this morning. With these winds I really wouldn't be surprised to find more down. If anyone is out this week and finds something let me know. Try to give a good desciption of where to so I am not just wandering around. Thanks. I plan to try to clear more trail in the morning just routine maintenance stuff.

That tree ended up crossing the trail in 3 different spots. I think we were pretty lucky it didn't hit anyone.

I didn't realize it was that big of a tree. How many did it take out in the process of falling?

Yeah, we were pretty lucky. Had I crossed there 20 seconds earlier, I would have been under it.

It took one other tree with it. They both feel in the same direction so it covered a pretty good area.

Cleared the entire North trail this morning. Should be really easy to follow right now. Blocked a few of the other intersections to help with the trail flow. I am sure they will get moved, but if you are out there soon and have never ridden it the way it actually goes now is the time.

Hoping to do a little more tomorrow morning.

North trail looked great! I was wondering who was clearing the trails and downed trees.

I am hoping to get out in the morning I plan to try to clear Schoolhouse tomorrow. It looks like I have a few people rounded up for Sunday's clean up as well so hopefully the whole park will be done this week.

Thanks for the tour Jake. I really liked the trails that we rode. I think ESP has some of the best terrain in the mid state area and some challenging sections. As much as I would like to help on sunday I will be in prison. Thank you to all the people working on the trail.

Those who know you won't think that this is strange.

There is some tree parts and such on the 2nd bridge on the north trail. The bridge did sustain some damage. Other than that, and the fact that they are kinda greasy, the trails aren't in too bad of shape. Must not have gotten that hail storm.

My guess is it is the idiot who claims to be taking care of the trails. Instead, he has spent most of his time cutting new trail that isn't even close to being sustainable. Meanwhile everything else continues to be over grown. I cleared and trimmed four of the trails myself and they already need major trimming again. We really need people to just take it upon themselves and get out there and help out.
