Scalp? I hope you're wearing a helmet while out there.

Yeah I was it just has a bunch of holes. The branch picked the perfect spot.

I road out there yesterday at the driving range point to point and looks like someone got rid of the low hanging stuff. Was a good ride overgrown in some areas but meh its the outdoors.

A couple of us (myself and Jake) cut back the overgrowth last year. While it helped, it was way too overwhelming for only a couple of people to do and I ended up injuring my hand/arm because of it. We even tried to get Cascades Cycling Club (who are supposed to be in charge of maintaining the trails) to lend a hand, but that ending up being a joke. The only way to do this is to gather a nice group together and tackle it in one day. This did happen a few years ago and was a great success, but that was the last (only?) time it happened.

Jackson has a nice gem in that park with those trails. It seems like the park is not at all interested in anyone maintaining those trails. Not the CCC or MMBA. This is the reason why I only ride there in the spring and fall. It is also why I cannot wait until the trails at Waterloo are complete and ready to ride.

Big thanks to whoever has put in trail work over the last week or so, many of the trails look a lot better.

Is anyone free Saturday? The tech loops need some love. I don't own any power tools so hopefully some can help out with a mower/weedwacker.

2nd bridge on the north loop is out, it looks like a tree fell on it and dislodged it slightly. Also a tree is down on the way into loop 1, right after the drop and before the sandy section. Didn't get a chance to ride many of the other trails
