Hearing about the broken powerline bridge from Rich and then reading about it on this forum from Dave made me a little sick this morning.
The south end of the east stringer is rotten and doesn't leave much choice (other than temporarily mending it) but to rebuild the whole thing.
I went out to the site this morning to see it for myself & started shopping for some pressure treated lumber right away, need about a 14' length x 2.
Anyone have any small I-beam stock ? The small bridge at the East loop trailhead is rotten, too. My home life is more than busy right now. Ugh.
Like ibisman said, please don't ride over the bridge for the time being, just walk across it for now until we can get it fixed and eventually replaced.
Rich shored it up for the interim, so that will buy us some time. The green growth is out of control and so are the various insect life !!
And in response to your request for help Dave, I will make an effort to get out there this week and next weekend to help chop back the weeds and
reach out to a couple of people that might be able to chip in, too. With all this rain this summer, all the trails are difficult to keep up with.
