I've been meaning to get these pictures up of the bridges that I worked on, but been busy up north feeding my other passions hunting & fishing. The flooding we have had this year has taken it's toll on some of the approaches. Pictures are from the north heading south on the trail
before: This one was difficult because of the uneven surface which is concrete with logs laid into it.
After: All the boards have a 45 cut into the faces to ease the transition.
Before: This bridge was upside down and 10 feet off to the side of the trail after the last flood. The logs were a temporary fix.
After: I found some 50# chunks of concrete and buried them snug against the bridge. Hopefully this will solve the
problem of it moving during flooding. Only time and another flood will tell.
No before pics of this one. I had alot to do and forgot. Those of you who ride this trail know this bridge as the one coming into the "humps" that is angled and curved. It had a 6-8 inch step up to get on to the bridge. I also made a
new line coming into the bridge to take out the turn just before you got onto the bridge. Trail was built before the
bridge it worked then, not so well after the bridge was built.
Here is the new approach.
This is the old line coming into the bridge.
This is the new one a smoother line coming into the bridge and coming off it.
Part of the new line looking up the trail to the bridge. From what i'm told it rides great. Thanks karl (kwings) for being my test rider and the first one to ride the new line and the approach.
