Has anyone ridden lately? I am wondering how many trees that wind we had dropped. Have a couple of days off this week so I should be able to knock some out.

I know the entrance to the Museum trail was blocked, not sure if it's been taken care of yet. I was going to head out just to survey and see how many trees are down. If you guys ride post up what needs work.

Hey guys, just back from there. I rode museum, hedgerow, driving range and school house. All were very dry except driving range which was just slightly greasy in usual areas. Hedgerow and driving range were clear. Jake, that big tree still blocking entrance of museum. No way around or over, I just barely made it under doing belly crawl dragging bike with me. Also another one down quite a bit further in but you can walk around it. School house was kinda a mess. 2 or 3 big trees just beyond where trail crosses tunnel trail, kinda around berm area. Also, very important, a guide wire stake driven into trail just before tunnel trail crossing. Ive never noticed it there before, it will ruin your day if you hit it. I cleared leaves from around it and stuck a big stick into the ground right next to it. Maybe spray paint it or might be able to get it out of ground with hammer wacking it back and forth. I tried to pull it out of ground but no luck, not sure how far it's driven in.

Went out to cut the museum this morning and somebody had already cleared the entrance. Didnt check schoolhouse because I didn't have enough time to find where they were down. I might be able to make it out tonight to see if the have been cleared.

just got back from there, I'm going to need a tour from one of you local riders. I got lost out there again, but I had fun doing it. noticed a few trees down out there but i don't know the loop names, it was the one that has the pump track next to it. to bad they wouldn't allow some stunts out there, some of those oaks down are huge.

There is a group ride on Mondays at 6:30. Come out then and you will likely ride most of the trail.

There is some brush hanging down over the trail on the north loop just past the first bridge crossing. Shouldn't take too long to clean up with a hand trimmer.
