During the trail day last Saturday, we also worked on this problem area.
It has always been a problem.

Not Anymore! Thanks to Steve & Jerry. They repurposed the old boardwalk where the new bridge is at.

As if spending 10 hours working on the new bridge was not enough
of a workout. I was feeling restless Sunday, and headed out to "Little Skinny"
to work on that feature, and to fix some other things.

I cut back the log end further, removed a stump and fine tuned "Little Skinny".

I also removed this bandit log pile, that was built with rotten logs and unsafe to ride.
I left them a message too, you will see it written on the log, in my best chainsaw handwriting 8) .
If you see anyone building, rerouting, removing etc.. question them. If their name is not
Aaaron, Mike or Paul, tell them you are going to report them

Rode this last night. Very nice! :icon_thumleft:

There were a number of "squishy" spots, but no real puddles over the ~3/4 of the trail I rode/ I did not ride the section next to the freeway, so YMMV.

The section next to the freeway did have several mushy spots, but the trail was always wide enough to avoid. Overall, the trail was relatively dry.

Thank you, glad you liked them! They were a much needed addition to the trail. CRPT should be in prime condition for the holiday
weekend. Just a reminder to everyone, it will be very busy on the trail weekend. Please be considerate of others, slow down
and say hi.

Thank you! That could have been me. If there was more then one person working on the bridge, most likely it was
Aaron and Phil. I got there about 6:30 and took over for them. We still need to finish installing the
hardware cloth. Have to order a 50ft roll of it, we bought all the local Ace hardwares out.

Went through last night and like the new bridge. Trail condition right now is PRIME, very sticky and seems the leaf cover is deteriorating.
