A big thank you!! To those who made it out Saturday for the trailday. We were able to
trim most of the trail, and remove all the deadfall that was not rideable. There are 2
more that I will get to soon. The heat and mozzies drove us out of the woods before
we could to them.

How is the trail in general? I was thinking about riding tomorrow (wednesday) after work. I'm sure along m53 is slushy since it has been what seems like all season... Any other trouble/wet spots?

Yeah, there are a few slick spots here and there still. Also, on the south end of Dodge Park, there were a few tight turns that seemed to be building up sand. Not a huge deal, but there was at least one spot where my tire dug in, and I nearly did not correct in time. Mosquitoes were very bad in both Dodge Park and River Bends. It goes against my philosop[hy of not driving to distant trail heads, but I think I need to switch up venues for a while. It's getting kind of old...

I was at dodge park a few days ago on the 22nd. There are some downed trees on the trail and the mosquitoes are pretty bad. The trail wasn't too muddy it was decent

There is a tree down across the trail, on the "Loch Ness Monster". It is near the shorter footbridge (This is the section of trail before you get to the Kleino section of trail). Probably going to need a chain saw. Thanks.

Im sorry, but what is the "Loch Ness Monster"? I don't know this feature, at least not by this name.

Thanks,

Me thinks they mean the series of hills which slightly resemble the 'loch ness' wooden structure at Riverbends. Between the curved bridge and the long one (the Mini-Mack?)

"I see", said the blind man " good morning ladies", as he walked throght the fish market. I figured thats where he
was talking about, just wanted to make sure before dragging the saw out there. I will get to it when we get back
in the country.

CRPT is clear from all deadfall/down trees. Surprisingly decent shape other than the problem areas of course. Even saw a guy on a unicycle tearing it up out there tonite.
