frank131, yes there would be some rules concerning adding wooden features as I wouldn't want "everyone" adding stuff, but that being said I wouldn't mind working with you and use up that extra wood (I have a bunch in my garage waiting for the same purpose) on the muddy sections which seems
to be one of the best solutions. I am going to try and get out to the trail either today or tomorrow and get a list of needed jobs in my head so that I have something for people to do when I set a trail day(s) which is needed to get everything ready for the summer riding season.
The area you mention in the clearing which I'm asssuming is where the power lines go through is actually ITC property and we are kind of lucky that they let the trail go through there as it is, so I am kind of hesitant to put any type of wooden structures in there as they come through periodically and clear out all the vegetation to allow access to said power lines (it's a federal law issue). But, again if you have an idea of how to make it flow better I would
be willing to see what you mean (I rerouted that section a couple years ago because it used to go up a rutted rain run off hill which you can see on the right). Stay tuned.
