CRPT got some love today. Here are the pics from today's projects.

25' of wire mesh(Phil wire :lol: ) was secured to the new bridge.

Dead fall was cut, removed and used for the new log pile feature.

Introducing the new log pile feature. It was created from the down tree that was blocking the trail. Aaron will be filling the gaps and anchor the sides tomorrow morning to prevent the feature from washing away in the future.

Great job with the new log structure! Another downed ash tree, put to good use! Plus, it was not moved out of its native area (e.g. Emerald Ash Borer).

Aaron and his gang of gravel masters at work again!! It's a fix, but not a long term one. We will be installing a
permanent fix, during our spring trail day. Stay tuned.........

Took my new fat bike for a test roll today, the section by the crane is a sheer swamp, the rest is more or less okay. A few slick spots here and there, the new gravel by the expressway is great! Thanks to you all that take care of this stuff.

I rode my fattie late thursday and broke trail for just about everything. Log over the trail on the North trail just after the part labeled log pile on trail map. I am more than willing to bring my chainsaw and remove it but didn't want to step on any toes.

Thank for the trail update. Please do not do any chainsaw work on CRPT, only TC's are allowed to use a chainsaw in the park.
One of the other TC's or I will get to this.

I rode early Saturday morning again. Holy crap a bunch of work has been done to paved path. Big thanks to all that did that. Also some work done on the trail going north. I hate to say it but there have been a bunch of kids "hanging out" on the trail and seem to be clueless on what the trail is really for. I am sure the police know what is going on back there but is there anything we can do?

Those kids hanging out on the trail, have no desire whatsoever to work in general. Let alone do manual
work on a trail. That generation is truly *beep* up.

The western section was in great shape and almost dry, on Sunday, I did not ride the other sections.
Of special note were the Big Mack and Little Mack bridges. The Little Mack really improves the ride. It was worth all the work.

Hit the trail yesterday answer it was in decent shape. The end straight was water/mud and then another spot when getting back on the trail after the berms. Overall not to shabby. Dig the new log roll. Also, am in right reading one one way trip is 4.25 miles?

Nope, 2.7 something miles one way. The straight away along M53, is getting a bridge, or a reroute this year. Stay tuned
for an upcoming trail day. Glad you enjoyed the new log pile, thank Phil (FLIPMODES) for that one.
